Château Boutisse, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

Château Boutisse, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

Fashioned from hand-harvested grapes from about 24 hectares of vineyards on the gentle sloping hills to the south and south-east of the town Saint-Émilion. The blend is 88% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. A traditional vinification is employed, 75% in stainless steel after a cold and short maceration and 25% in 500 litre oak barrels; the malolactic fermentation and lees ageing is carried out in oak barrels. The nose shows sweet ripe fruit, spice, caramel and mocha; the palate has velvety integrated tannins aside a good fresh finish.
