Description

Elegant berry-fruit aromas backed with a hint of cedar and spice, soft supple tannins marrying into the cherry-fruit flavours result in a wine that is rich and smooth.

2009 Vintage: "Unfussy and flavoursome and excellent value left our panel in no doubt, this was Gold material. Black fruit flavours with hints of spice and a medicinal note to the nose. On the palate, consultant Sarah Jane Evans MW said: 'Very juicy, with a mocha note. Very fun - good House Wine,' while consultant Peter McCombie MW simply said 'Gutsy!' Food matches range from pub classic shepherds pie to plum crumble." Sommelier Wine Awards 2012 2006 Vintage: "A medium-ruby wine that has plenty of light, savoury, earthy notes and some tannins supporting the finish. 'Dark fruits and spicy, slightly meaty richness' said an approving Tom Forrest." In a competition where only 5 Golds were awarded to Rhone wines, 4 were supplied by Boutinot, with 2 actually being made by Boutinot. "...we must also pass special congratulations to Boutinot. Its two cheaper reds were excellent value for money and ought to be must-stocks for any venue." "Quite how the winemakers have managed to produce a Gold list-winning Rhone red at this price, I have no idea. Ridiculously good value, with approachable fruit but also a real sense of place, this wine deserves to be the workhorse red on lists up and down the country."
