Vinification takes place parcel by parcel in a new state-of-the-art winery. The concrete tanks are located underground, which facilitates running off the wine by gravity. The small, squat thermo-regulated tanks optimise the cap-juice ratio, thereby improving extraction. The grapes were cold soaked, followed by traditional vinification. A proportion of the fruit was fermented in 500 litre oak barrels. Malolactic conversion took place in new oak barrels, followed by ageing on the fine lees in French oak barrels for 12 to 15 months.

Winery

Situated near the highest point of the appellation, the 25 hectares of vineyard extend over the limestone plateau and slopes, not far from the medieval city. The limestone plays a major role in regulating the vine's water supply, creating the moisture stress that is necessary to obtain high quality grapes. The 35 year old vines are trained according to the double Guyot method and were grafted onto American rootstocks. Manual leaf removal and green harvesting takes place in order to retain only the best bunches of these high quality grapes. Chateau Boutisse is certified High Environmental Value (HVE) Level 3 and it places great emphasis on the quality and biodiversity of its soils, which are tilled instead of using chemical preparations. Oats and mustard are grown to produce green manure in order to eliminate the need for fertilisers and grass cover crops are planted. The grapes are hand-harvested.
