Boutinot Rhône | The Wine Of The Rhône, France

Boutinot Fide et Arte ‘Les Coteaux’, Côtes du Rhône Villages 2014

Our winemaking philosophy is to make the very best Côtes du Rhône Villages we can. We source principally Grenache Noir and Syrah grapes from vineyards encompassed within the named villages of the southern Rhȏne valley specifically to make 'Les Coteaux'. We then mature and enrich the final assemblage with wines from the upper tier of barrels from the classified villages of Sablet, Séguret and Cairanne so that the wine is part oak-aged. Boutinot Fide et Arte 'Les Coteaux' is therefore a selection of the best from some of the named Côtes du Rhône Villages, rather than the wine ‘left over’ after making named Villages.

The heart of the wine is lusciously fruity and unoaked with a touch of complexity interwoven from 20% matured for a minimum of 22 months in a combination of new and old French oak barrels.

'Les Coteaux' 2014 has instantly appealing tones of warm fully ripe southern Rhône fruit, lifted by nuances of oak, which flow into layers of supple and smooth textures and roll forward to a full-flavoured sumptuous finish.
