Wine tasting notes

More depth and intensity than it's 2015 counterpart, Jacky's Les Perrieres comes from a plot of of very poor soil over limestone. It is always the most mineral, floral and linear of the Domaine de la Butte Bourgeuils.

Winery information

Domaine de la Butte

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.

Black cherry, fuller body than their Haut de la Butte, and a spicier style too. Dry but drinkable – has juiciness to keep the palate fresh. (
