Chateau Boutisse Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2018 (France: Bordeaux) (ID# 3277)

Name Chateau Boutisse Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2018 (ID# 3277)
Varietal Red Blend
Region France: Bordeaux
Notes "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Boutisse comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of baked black plums, boysenberries and Morello cherries, plus suggestions of rose hip tea, fragrant soil, cinnamon stick and star anise. The full-bodied palate is rich and oh-so-plush, featuring a fantastic backbone of freshness and loads of spicy sparks to complement the black and red berry preserves, finishing long and mineral tinged. Beautiful." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"The 2018 Boutisse is every bit as compelling as it was en primeur. Racy red berry fruit, mint, rose petal, mocha and blood orange lend brightness and energy. Medium in body and pliant, with refined tannins, the 2018 hits all the right notes. This is such a racy, finessed Saint-Émilion. It will drink well with minimal cellaring." (Vinous) "The two Milhade siblings have produced a rich, many-layered wine. With dense tannins balanced by equally intense fruit, this Merlot-based wine is concentrated. Black fruits, acidity and layers of tannins need time to come together." (Wine Enthusiast)
