Still buzzing about Vinexpo Asia-Pacific…

Boutinot Rhône’s 2012 visit to Vinexpo Asia-Pacific was a great success according to International Manager, Jenny Davies “We had a exhilirating three days in Hong Kong; the fair was vibrant and bustling. Rhône appeared to be a strong focus, with customers interested to try new wines and learn more about the Boutinot Rhône range”.

Featured at the show was the 'Les Coteaux’ Côtes du Rhône Villages 2009 - a China Best Value Wine Award Gold winner. "The award confirms the appeal of our wines to the Chinese palate and recognise the consistent quality and value in what we produce. In such an exciting and emerging wine drinking market, the awards offer fantastic exposure and endorsement of the wines that we are passionate about”.

In addition three of the six Boutinot Rhône wines were also on show; giving the estimated 15k visitors an opportunity to taste a wide range of varieties and maturation styles:-

‘La Fleur Solitaire’, Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2011, a Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Marsanne-Rousanne blend, was accompanied by ‘Les Coteaux Schisteux’, Séguret, Côtes du Rhône Village 2009 (mostly Grenache Noir) and ‘La Côte Sauvage’, Cairanne Côtes du Rhône Villages 2007 and 2009 (Grenache Noir with Syrah and a little Mourvèdre and old vine Carignan Noir).

“We are very excited about the future potential in Asia and will be spending a lot of time in the market to support our customers. We look forward to seeing the development of the Vinexpo Hong Kong and hope to attend again in two years” concluded Jenny.
