2014 & 2017 Château Bouscassé

A digital tasting isn´t - duuh - like a real tasting but still, you get to taste some great wines, listen to the wine maker and be able sit in your leisure clothes at home...
The other day I had the privilege to listen to Antoine Veiry from Brumont. We tasted a bunch of wines, more notes to follow, but I will start with the two I finished of with dinner.

2014 Château Bouscassé
From a half bottle. A medium dep nose with notes of herbs, red and black currants, fresh stables and earth, Very good. 
The taste is rocky and earthy with additional notes of herbs, cigarette ashes and red currants. A nice finish. 50% Tannat and equally parts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
87p   (tasted 2021/04)

2017 Château Bouscassé
An open, fruity and fine nose with notes of black currants, plums, violets, earth and sweet pipe tobacco. Very, very good.
The taste is medium bodiedm warm and nicely structured with notes of herbs, black currants, tobacco and violets. More interesting on the nose, but still very, very good. A very fine value at 17 Euro.
88p   (tasted 2021/04)
