Château Boutisse 2018 (90-93 VM) (90-92)
“A perennial over-achiever (I still have a few bottles of the 2000), the 2018 Château Boutisse is 92% Merlot with the balance Cabernet Franc, Carmenere, and Cabernet Sauvignon, all from the cooler Saint-Christophe-de-Bardes region of Saint-Emilion. Medium to full-bodied, plump, and beautifully textured, it has moderate acidity, a fleshy texture, and ripe, forward notes of red plums, black cherries, and spice. It should be an outstanding wine and drink well for over a decade.”

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Purchased in 1996,the Milhade family have invested enormously in the vineyards and facilities at Boutisse and, above all, with their energy. Today Boutisse is no longer a surprise - dynamic young winemaker Marc Milhade has transformed this estate into an outstanding Saint-Emilion, with ripe, structured and engaging character.
These 3 estates are run by an extended family and represent in both the past and future an extraordinarily exciting story: estates on the right bank of Bordeaux making utterly authentic, soulful wines, led by a dynamic young generation eager to bring its own perspective and energy.
