2015 Lys de Chateau Bouteilley,
Cotes de Bordeaux AOC
The Château Bouteilley estate has belonged to the Guillot family since 1617 and is located on the clay-limestone hillsides of Yvrac. The wines are made in a state-of-the-art winery fitted with specially-designed stainless steel tanks (patented by Jean Guillot) enabling efficient and consistent temperature control and good maceration conditions.
The wine is an intense dark red with ruby highlights.
On first pour, aromas of stewed red fruits and black cherries are exuded, enhanced by an extremely refined toasted oak note.
Full, generous attack on the palate leading into a fresh, easy-drinking mid-palate displaying good volume.
The finish is driven by ripe, velvety tannins and gives an impression of natural elegance with lengthy aromatic presistency revealing more of the fruity nose aromatics. Can be savoured young whilst still lush and fruit-forward but also boasts real ageability due to a strong personality
