Wine tasting notes

A wine of considerable charm, wonderful purity and very fine tannins, this combines lovely ripe dark cherry and herbal dark chocolate flavours with fresh tobacco and fine earth. Coming from the poor, flinty soils at the top of the slope and aged entirely in used oak barriques, Haut de la Butte tends to drink well on release, but certainly has the stuffing to age.

Expert reviews

JancisRobinson.com (2016) - 17 pts

Fantastic nose with all the vivid red fruit of the Loire, but much of the sophistication of Bordeaux, with a varnish and earthy note which may be a touch of VA or even brett, but works so nicely in the mix! Furry tannic grip with mouth-watering acid and medium body with loads of clarity to the fruit, right through to the finish. A claret-killer?
