Boutinot ‘La Côte Sauvage’, Cairanne Côtes du Rhône Villages (magnum) 2015

FPB965

Domaine Boutinot Rhône

Our flagship wine from Cairanne 'La Côte Sauvage' is characterised by finesse and a finely-grained texture, due in part to the famous ‘argilo-calcaire’ of our hilltop vineyards such as La Pauline and Les Six Terrasses, slow winemaking methods and gentle maturation in old French oak of different barrel sizes.

Production

The Southern Rhône village of Cairanne lies in the heart of the Southern Rhône valley, north east of Orange. Nearby Chateauneuf-du-Pape was the first village in the whole of France to be recognized for its quality and individuality, and neighbouring villages such as Cairanne are queuing up to receive their own Appellation Contrôlée status, but representing excellent value for money in the intervening period. For this La Côte Sauvage fully ripe Grenache and Syrah grapes are hand picked from bush vines in selected vineyards within Cairanne, northeast of Orange in the heart of the Rhône valley. To make this Cairanne, Paul Boutinot used traditional vinification techniques - indigenous yeast and a long cuvaison period, followed by maturation in French oak barrels to develop great concentration, complexity and finesse in the wine.

Tasting notes

Rich, savoury and meaty - lovely! Intense morello cherry fruit and a touch of spice on the nose, ripe berry, liquorice and a hint of cinnamon spice on the palate, this wine is full flavoured, rich and smooth with supple tannins.

Food match

The perfect match for red meat dishes and rich stews.
