In 1952, Hervé Duboscq, whose family were from Gascony, had the foresight to take on 7 hectares of land in St. Estèphe in the north of the Médoc. After the war he gradually built up an estate of 76 hectares. This passed to his son Henri, who established the wine’s pedigree and is now run with verve and commitment by his sons Hugues and Bruno. From the outset, the Duboscqs have developed their own style, more approachable compared to the muscular wines of other St. Estèphe estates.
Young, but full of fruit and vitality – the very essence of what good, everyday drinking Claret should be. Outstanding value for money!
Henri Duboscq Bordeaux has lots of rich ripe plum and blackberry fruit on the nose with spice and black pepper. The palate is very similar to the nose, with the addition of liquorice. A rich and satisfying palate with excellent depth and fruit. This one punches way above the weight. Balanced tannins make this an ideal accompaniment to food.
Grape Varieties: Merlot 80%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%
