Chateau Haut Boutisse is a private 500-case selection of casks from Chateau Palais Cardinal in southern Saint-Emilion. Here the La Fuie stream runs through and brings a band of gravel which drains the soils and gives the cabernet an intense fruitiness. The clay and chalk give the merlot its expression and Michel Rolland help to do the rest.
The JEUNE family is a longstanding & well-known dynasty of Châteauneuf-du-Pape who can trace their ancestors back to the 14th century. The marriage of Christiane Establet with Pierre Elie Jeune in the 1960s united the properties of these two venerable families, establishing Domaine du Grand Tinel, one of the largest estates in the appellation. The inspiration for the name Tinel comes from the Latin for “cask”. Today, Christophe Jeune and his two sisters, Beatrice and Isabelle, carry on the tradition of producing traditional-style Châteauneuf in a family-run affair.
