Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting, the 2012 Bouscaut had a medicinal bouquet with strong peppermint aromas filtering through and depriving it of full terroir expression. This is completely different to my memories of how the barrel sample showed. The palate is sweet and rounded on the entry, quite succulent but demonstrating a little over-extraction and too much oakiness on the finish. It is a wine that is trying hard, maybe too hard to impress when perhaps there was no need. I will seek to re-evaluate this. Tasted January 2016.
