Boha is in a way the second cuvée of the estate with a blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from 30 year old vines on a sandy-clay terroir. After harvesting, the grapes are vinified plot by plot in small concrete vats, followed by 6 months of maturing in vats to keep the intensity and freshness of the wine.
Boha develops aromas of ripe black fruits, notes of sweet spices, chocolate and liquorice. It is velvety, smooth, with silky tannins, on an aroma of ripe black fruits, almost jammy. There are also slight spicy notes, one would think there has been a short barrel ageing, but these are just the natural aromas of the grape!
Château Magdeleine Bouhou, located in the commune of Cars, east of Blaye, has belonged to the Revaire family since 1908. Today, it is Muriel Rousseau-Revaire who is at the head of Château Magdeleine Bouhou, since 2004. The 17 hectares of the vineyard are cultivated using sustainable viticulture, combining biological, physical and cultural measures that respect life and the soil.
The name of the castle refers to the winds of the estuary. Bouhou, "bouhar" in Gascon, means to blow. Formerly the property of two Bordeaux merchants, Arnaut and Jeantet, whose respective daughters were called Madeleine, they decided to give the name of Magdeleine-Bouhou to the castle, as a link between the two families.
