LIMESTONE, A PRESTIGIOUS STONE
Planted on the plateau of Saint-Emilion, the vines of Chateau Boutisse benefit from the nearby presence of limestone.
It plays a major role in regulating the vine’s water supply
Slowly releasing water, but never in excess, limestone naturally creates the moisture stress necessary to obtain high quality grapes that have earned Saint-Emilion its reputation.Suite
STRESSED VINES MAKE FOR GREAT GRAPES
Infiltrating its roots through clay and limestone crevices, vines search out moisture and the elements necessary for its growth and development. The vine must struggle and stay balanced in order to limit vigor and obtain excellent grapes, and it is here that limestone and clay reveal their essence.Retour
