Boutinot Seguret Cotes du Rhone Villages

Boutinot Seguret Cotes du Rhone Villages

Boutinot's love affair with the Southern Rhône spans thirty years of making wine in the region. In 2010, the relationship was sealed with the purchase of a winery and vineyards above the village of Cairanne. Domaine Boutinot's seven vineyards are planted with classic southern Rhône grape varieties, old vine Grenache Noir and Syrah, Mourvédre and Carignan Noir, and they all sit within the Cairanne Cru boundaries, sanctioned in 2016 when Cairanne was granted its own appellation status.Working with our vigneron neighbours we are helping to revive traditional grape varieties such as Cinsault and Counoise, and in the cellar we prefer time-honoured winemaking methods such as a long cuvasion aided only by natural yeasts, gentle remontage, manual pigeage and patient maturation in a nursery of French oak barrels.

Vineyards

'Les Turcs' is a single, east-facing, high-altitude vineyard with stony, argillaceous limestone terraces, above the schistous slopes of the village of Séguret. Here, on 50 year old vines (some are even older), the grapes benefit from the morning sun and from even ripening temperatures. Grenache Noir and Syrah can only be harvested by hand in this unforgiving terroir.

Vinification

Traditional long cuvasion using only wild yeasts is aided by regular remontage to release all the potential of the grapes and their skins. The wine spends 22 months in French oak 228l barrels and 600l demi-muids.

Tasting Notes

An impressive, classic Séguret - about as good as Côtes du Rhône Villages gets! The nose is as explosive, plush and opulent as ever, layered with suggestions of exotic spices, cracked black pepper and streaked with vanilla. The palate is instantly appealing, polished and smooth on entry but steeped in depth and texture as the flavours swirl around, lengthen and delight. The lasting impression is satisfying - a big and opulent Grenache-driven wine with obvious oak quality, great structure, length and finish.

Big hearty casseroles and juicy meat dishes, or be really adventurous and try it with a Thai Massaman curry.

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