Boutinot Rhône | The Wine Of The Rhône, France

Word Has Spread State Side

Boutinot ‘La Côte Sauvage’, Cairanne Côtes du Rhône Villages
We all know how amazing the Boutinot Rhône range is, particularly the 2007 vintage; but word has now spread State side with our first Wine Spectator review (and 90 points to boot) for Boutinot 'La Cote Sauvage' Cairanne Cotes du Rhône Villages 2007.

James Molesworth, one of Wine Spectator’s specialist Editors had this to say about our 2007 Cairanne creation:
“Mature, this sports lovely, alluring mesquite and sandalwood aromas giving way to mulled damson fruit, black cherry and Lapsang souchong tea notes. The long, suave finish lets the mesquite note hang nicely. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault. Drink now. 1,500 cases made.”

See the Wine Spectator October 15th 2011 edition for more details.

For those of you wise enough to buy some of the 2007 when it was flowing freely a year ago, I suspect you already know how good it is! And for those who were clever enough to squirrel some away … pats on the back for your foresight. For everyone else, don’t worry because we have a small handful of magnums stashed away which we'll be releasing soon. If you miss out on those, don't panic because the 2009 is looking pretty good too!
