A wonderful bouquet of ripe red fruit; smooth, velvety and elegant on the palate, with attractive mocha and caramel and soft tannins through to a fine finish.
Château Boutisse was purchased in 1996 by winemaker and oenologist Xavier Milhade. The Milhade family has been making wine in the Libournais region since 1938 and today, Xavier’s children Elodie and Marc run the Château. It is located in the commune of Saint Christophe des Bardes, one of the top communes in AOC St-Emilion. It is a relatively large estate for St-Emilion with 25 hectares, mainly planted with Merlot. Huge investments have been poured into the vineyards since 1996 with several parcels of vines being completely replanted. Château Boutisse possesses excellent terroir; when the soil was ripped and prepared for planting, large chunks of the limestone were visible under the chalky clay topsoil. In 2017, Château Boutisse was certified Haute Valeur Environmentale Level 3.
