Description

The 2014 Boutisse was nicely controlled in barrel, but now in bottle it is letting it all hang out with oodles of blueberry and cassis fruit, almost as if there was a lot of Petit Verdot in the blend. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin on the entry, but that is supported by a concentrated and quite structured mid-palate. Generous blackberry, bilberry and light tobacco scents merge into a spicy, stocky, grippy finish. There is something brash about this Boutisse, but I still found myself smitten. - WA90

The 2014 Boutisse is plump, juicy and absolutely delicious. Plum, black cherry, menthol, lavender and sweet spices abound in this very pretty, extroverted Saint-Émilion from the Saint Christophe Des Bardes sector. The 2014 is juicy, fruit-forward and will also be easy to drink young. - Novembre 2016. - V-AG91

With vineyards to the east of Saint-Émilion itself, this chateau has produced a structured, obviously wood-aged wine. It's a wine still in development, bursting with young black-currant and black-plum fruits as well as acidity. The wood is a strong background presence and will soften over the next few years. Drink from 2020.- WE91

Features a hefty coating of ganache and mocha, with a core of plum and boysenberry fruit waiting in the background. The broad, velvety finish lets the toast hold sway. Ambitious. Hopefully the fruit will push through.— 6 April 2015.- WS88-91

The Winery

CHATEAU BOUTISSE, A STORY WITH A LONG HISTORY

The estate has survived the centuries, with stone work and viticulture. In 1783, Pierre Belleyme, the king’s geographer engineer, noted the presence of Château Boutisse on his map of Guyenne.

The village of Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes dates back to ancient times; the "bards" were religious Christians, formerly called Druids, who had settled in the area and organized and animated social life.

A VINEYARD WITH XAVIER MILHADE’S SIGNATURE

Since he bought the property in 1996, Xavier Milhade has made all efforts to ensure its longevity. His children, Marc and Elodie, continue to develop sales and quality while respecting the family’s traditional values.

The efforts made these past several years have positioned Château Boutisse among the best Saint-Emilion Grand Cru wines.
