Boutinot ‘Les Deux Barriques’, Cairanne AOC (magnum in wooden gift box) 2015


Domaine Boutinot Rhône

We produce 'Les Deux Barriques' only when we feel that the vintage has given something special, when the results of our tastings show that we have two outstanding barrels - 'deux barriques' - that merit bottling in their own right. Since 2005 five vintages have been released with this fifth vintage - 2015 - marking the inaugural release as cru Cairanne AOC and presented in an individual wooden gift box.

Meet the producer

Boutinot’s love affair with the Southern Rhône spans thirty years of making wine in the region. In 2010, the relationship...



Made from low-yielding old vines of Grenache and Carignan Noir, with Syrah and Mourvèdre grown in the hills above the village of Cairanne in the southern Rhône valley. Hand-picked grapes are vinified only by naturally occuring yeasts, aided by manual pigeage and gentle remontage in open topped oak vats (tronconique). Les Deux Barriques is matured for 24 months in French oak demi-muid (600 litre barrels); the wine is neither fined or filtered before botting at Domaine Boutinot in Cairanne.

Tasting notes

Our fifth vintage of Les Deux Barriques embodies the phenomenal concentration and complexity of the 2015 vintage. Primary fruit and overt oak have evolved into rich, autumnal aromas of dried fruit, with flavours of blueberries and black tea on the finish.

Food match

Great match with robustly flavoured dishes such as Lyonnaise sausage with puy lentils. Being neither fined nor filtered before bottling, please store below 14°C and decant before serving.
