Boutinot Les Coteaux Schisteux Seguret Cotes du Rhone Villages
£14.50
Paler ruby than some earlier vintages due to the extreme proportion of Grenache, the nose is however as explosive, plush and opulent as ever, layered with exotic spice, cracked black pepper and of course streaked with crushed vanillin. The palate is instantly appealing, polished and smooth on entry but steeped in depth and texture as the flavours swirl around, lengthen and delight. The lasting impression is satisfying - a big, oppulent and sweet Grenache driven wine with obvious oak quality, great structure, length and finish.

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
Sourced from ‘Les Turcs’, a single 7ha east-facing terraced high altitude vineyard in the hills behind the village of Séguret, planted with mostly Grenache intermingled with some Syrah, vines whose minimum age is 50, many older still. The high altitude, old vines and very particular terroir make our Séguret quite unique. These are stony, argillaceous limestone terraces high above the schistous slopes of the village of Séguret. Here the grapes benefit from the morning sun and even ripening temperatures.

Vinification
All the grapes are hand-picked. Traditional long cuvaison using only indigenous yeasts and remontages to release all the potential of the grapes and their skins. 24 months in French oak 228 litre barrels and one quarter in 600 litre demi-muids, one third new, one third of 2nd fill and one third of 3rd & 4th fill.
