Château Boutisse 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  368175

From the eastern part of the appellation and firmer clay soils, the deeply colored 2016 Château Boutisse (85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Carménère brought up in one-third new barrels) gives up a vibrant bouquet of blueberries, jammy black cherries, graphite, and earth. It's rich and powerful on the palate, yet displays a beautiful elegance and purity of fruit as well as fine tannins. It's an impressive wine. Drink date: 2019-2034. Score - 93.
