Château Boutisse 2016 (93+ VM)
“The 2016 Boutisse is magnificent. Striking aromatics and veins of saline minerality frame this absolutely exquisite, nuanced Saint-Émilion. Blood orange, mint, sage and floral notes add myriad shades of nuance to the red-toned fruit in a Saint-Émilion that pulses with energy and vibrancy. There is so much to like here. Alain Raynaud consults. Tasted two times.”

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.
