In a Nutshell
Exceptional Grenache and Syrah from the best Côtes du Rhône Villages is used to make Les Coteaux
Immediately impressive this wine reveals its class from the start. Brambly fruit underpinned by subtle oaky nuances, lovely sweet spice; warm star anise with a touch of cinnamon. This classic Côtes du Rhône Villages is enriched with specially-selected parcels from the cru vineyards of Séguret, Sablet and Cairanne.
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 Rhône 'Les Coteaux' is therefore a selection of the best Grenache Noir & Syrah from some of the 17 named Côtes du Rhône Villages. We source 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. Côtes du Rhône Villages enriched with barrels of ‘classified’ named Village wine from Cairanne, Sablet and Séguret. Mostly unoaked, a small proportion (20%) is part aged for 22 months in a few new but mostly older oak barrels to bring depth and subtle notes of complexity.
Boutinot France Rhône
Boutinot’s love affair with the southern Rhône is both enduring and unswerving – it’s where they bought their first ever vineyard in France – in the village of Cairanne.
