About Chateau Haut Boutisse 2015 Saint Emilion Grand Cru

This is a very exciting find! Chateau Haut Boutisse is a private 500-case selection of casks from Chateau Palais Cardinal in southern Saint-Emilion. Here the La Fuie stream runs through and brings a band of gravel which drains the soils and gives the Cabernet an intense fruitiness. The clay and chalk give the Merlot its expression and famed Eonologist Michel Rolland helps to do the rest.

The vines average a mature 40 years of age with deep roots. The blend is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The grapes are all hand-picked and sorted. A short cold maceration is followed by fermentation in temperature controlled tanks. The wine aged on the lees for 20 months in 60-80% new French oak barrels.

Beverage Testing Institute (tastings.com) scored this 93 points saying "Black garnet color. Aromas of sweet nutmeg, ripe dark fruits, violet pastille  coasted  aniseed,  maple,  and  rich  fruitcake  with  a  round, vibrant,  dry-yet-fruity  medium-full  body  and  a  warming,  complex, medium-long earth, dried figs, dark, and smoky caramel finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak. A complex Bordeaux that will age with grace. Pairs well with meat and vegetables."
