Description

Details

Boutinot’s love affair with the southern Rhône is both enduring and unswerving. They believe that they can make great wine here and for that reason, Boutinot bought their first vineyard in France, in the southern Rhône – in the village of Cairanne. Ten years ago, Boutinot first glimpsed the potential of the vineyards of Cairanne when they released the 2000 vintage of La Côte Sauvage. Now they have several plots of old vines they call their own and begin to realise the dream of making even better wine. Over the past decade or so Boutinot have built enviable relationships with a network of local growers and continue to source grapes and wine from their trove of prized vineyards for the full range of Rhône wines.

Vineyards
Common practice in the Côtes du Rhône is to bottle the best cuvées as a single named Village wine and the rest as basic Rhône Villages. Boutinot’s philosophy, on the other hand, is to start with the intention of making the very best Côtes du Rhône Villages possible by sourcing wine from the vineyards of named villages and enriching them with a small proportion of barrel-aged wine from Sablet, Séguret & Cairanne. Boutinot Rhȏne 'Les Coteaux' is therefore a selection of the best Grenache & Syrah from some of the 17 named Côtes du Rhône Villages. Eric Monnin sources wine from a number of growers with exceptional terroir allowing him the flexibility to select only the very best fruit each vintage and reject parcels which do not meet our high standards.

Vinification
Côtes du Rhône Villages enriched with barrels of ‘classified’ named Village wine from Cairanne, Sablet and Séguret. Mostly unoaked, a small proportion (15%) is part aged for 22 months in a few new but mostly older oak barrels to bring depth and subtle notes of complexity.
