Château Bouscaut: Vineyards
The Château Bouscaut estate sits just south of the road between the towns of Léognan and Cadaujac, very close to the latter. It is therefore surrounded on two sides by suburban housing, while to the north beyond a copse of trees lie the vineyards of Château Couhins, and to the west are those of Château Carbonnieux. Further back down the road, of course, are the estates of Château Haut-Bailly, Château La Louvière and Château Larrivet Haut-Brion, among others.
The Bouscaut vineyard runs down the slope, the soils here largely clay and gravel over limestone rock, and today there are 54 hectares planted to vines. The majority of the vines are red, covering 47 hectares, and these are 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec.Please log in to continue reading:
