Château Bouscassé is the original home of Alain Brumont. The soil here is different from Montus, being clay, limestone and grès, a limestone rock. The vines – made up of 70% Tannat, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc – are 60-85 years old. Château Bouscasséis made up of 50% Tannat, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, picked by hand, destemmed, with a cuvaison of 4 weeks then aged in one or two year old barrels for around 12 months. It’s big and full-flavoured, packed with black fruits, cassis, cloves, cedar and a whole herb garden of savoury notes.
