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

FPB152

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. For this La Côte Sauvage fully ripe Grenache and Syrah grapes are hand picked from old bush vines on selected hillside slopes within Cairanne. The vineyards have the classic argilo-calcaire soil of limestone pebbles over clay. To make this Cairanne we use traditional vinification techniques - indigenous yeast and a long cuvaison period, followed by maturation for 22 months in mostly old French oak barrels to develop great concentration, complexity and finesse in the wine.

Tasting notes

A serious, restrained and complex wine. It is rich, intense and drenched in dark red fruits. With morello cherry and a touch of sweet spice on the nose, ripe berry, liquorice, chocolate, summer pudding and a hint of cinnamon spice on the palate, this wine is full flavoured and smooth with supple tannins. A rich, savoury and meaty mouthful!

Food match

The perfect match for red meat dishes and rich stews.
