The Details

In a Nutshell

Smooth, rich and supple, a classic from the newest appellation in the southern Rhône.

Tasting Notes

Brimming with red and black fruits, underpinned by spice and mocha and the tannins smoothed out by careful oak aging, this is powerful, rich and supple with a savoury and very characterful finish.

Production Notes

Sourced from vineyards on terraced escarpments (Les Banquettes Escarpées) on the same ridge as Cairanne in the southern Rhône, these south-facing slopes gained their own AC in 2010. The Syrah is from younger vines and adds freshness and elegance to the dark, spicy Grenache.

Aged for 24 months in French oak barrels.

Producer - 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.

Press Quotes & Awards

Plenty of oak, good depth and great length. Dark cherry, leather and sweet spice. The palate is grippy - very serious, especially considering the price. Great wine!

Sommelier Wine Awards 2014, Judges Comments

Silver (outstanding) (2010 vintage)

IWSC 2014

Mid garnet red. Complex, mature and gently spicy aromas laced with a discreet dollop of well integrated oak and sweet, fruity notes. The palate is also ripe and well developed, with the emphasis from dark berry fruit; silky smooth texture, perfectly dry, of medium weight and very sleek from start to finish, the latter being long and refined.
