Boutinot France’s new offices are in the middle of vineyards of St Vérand AC on the southern perimeter of the Mâconnais. Drive five minutes down the road and cross the border into the northern rim of the Beaujolais cru, St. Amour – the village in which Samantha Bailey, our Master Blender, got married – all the hilly Beaujolais crus lie to the south in front of you. Unsurprisingly after twenty years in the region, Samantha knows the Beaujolais and Mâconnais intimately and sources all our Beaujolais crus directly from growers, selecting by blind tasting either single domaine or single vineyard wines. For Pouilly Fuissé Samantha is given free rein to select and blend unoaked component wines at Guy Saumaize’s Domaine des Maillettes. For our Mâconnais Samantha tastes all the cuves in the cellars of local producer, Cave de Charnay-les-Mâcon, and is given equal free rein to select and blend Mâcon-Charnay for Réserve Personelle as well as for both Domaine Les Perserons and St Véran Clos de Chevigne.
Gamay vines grown on the slopes of the rolling beaujolais hills.
Whole bunch Gamay is fermented using traditional carbonic maceration techniques. Short cuvaison is used in order to keep the up-front juicy fruit characters.
Exuberant fruity red wine with juicy crushed strawberries, cherry characters and an intriguing savoury twist. The palate is soft and approachable with vibrant acidity and a mouth-watering floral, morello cherry finish.
