Boutinot Cairanne Magnum

Boutinot's love affair with the Southern Rhône is both enduring and unswerving. They believe that they can make great wine here and for that reason, Boutinot bought their first vineyard in France, in the Southern Rhône, in the village of Cairanne. Ten years ago, Boutinot first glimpsed the potential of the vineyards of Cairanne when they released the 2000 vintage of La Côte Sauvage. Now they have several plots of old vines they call their own and begin to realise the dream of making even better wine. Over the past decade or so Boutinot have built enviable relationships with a network of local growers and continue to source grapes and wine from their trove of prized vineyards for the full range of Rhône wines.

Vineyards

The Southern Rhône village of Cairanne lies in the heart of the Southern Rhône valley, north east of Orange. For this La Côte Sauvage fully ripe Grenache and Syrah grapes are hand-picked from old bush vines on selected hillside slopes within Cairanne, northeast of Orange in the heart of the Rhône valley. The vineyards have the classic argilo-calcaire soil of limestone pebbles over clay.

Vinification

To make this Cairanne, Boutinot winemaker, Eric, uses traditional vinification techniques - indigenous yeast and a long cuvaison period, followed by maturation for 22 months in mostly old French oak barrels to develop great concentration, complexity and finesse in the wine.

Tasting Notes

A serious, restrained and complex wine that is nowhere near its peak yet. It is rich, intense and drenched in dark red fruits. With morello cherry and a touch of sweet spice on the nose, ripe berry, liquorice, chocolate, summer pudding and a hint of cinnamon spice on the palate, this wine is full flavoured and smooth with supple tannins.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
