The 2017 Bourgueil 'le Pied de la Butte' from Jacky Blot is a nicely cool customer (twelve percent octane) that is intensely flavored and light on its feet. The superb bouquet jumps from the glass in a complex and very pure blend of dark berries, cherries, tree bark, cigar ash, dark soil tones, a discreet framing of cedar and a bit of upper register menthol. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, tangy and nicely soil-driven, with a very good core of fruit, ripe tannins and a long, vibrant and nascently complex finish. This is a lovely bottle of Bourgueil in the making, which is already quite approachable, but will be even better with a bit of bottle age. 2018-2040+.
Fresh, with light-bodied but racy blood orange and damson fruit flavors lined with floral and mineral accents. Almost breezy through the finish. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made. (JM) Web 2018
