Domaine de la Butte 2019 Bourgueil "La Pied de la Butte"

Description

750 ml, by Jacky Blot

From vines growing at “the bottom of the hill.” No oak, only concrete. Deep ruby. The big, fruity nose offers lots of cherry and red berry. Red fruit carries onto the palate, balanced with a dark slate note. Fruitier in style but very attractive, immediate and quaffable.

After 15 years of creating masterful Chenins from Vouvray and Montlouis at his Taille aux Loups Domaine, Jacky Blot has turned his hand to the red wines of Bourgueil. After buying the 14-hectare estate in 2002, this Loire maestro has already made an enormous impact by adopting a Burgundian approach in the vineyard, each cuvée is fermented separately according to its position on the slope. The grapes are picked by hand and crushed by foot before fermentation and élévage in oak cask. These are sensational small production red wines and are some of the most sensual Cabernet Francs in the world.
