Intent on making the very best Côtes du Rhône Rosé we can, we search for varieties naturally suited to rosé; Grenache Noir for body, Cinsault for freshness and a touch of spice from a drop of Syrah.
An elegant, truly gastronomic rosé from our home in the Rhône. A classic salmon pink rosé with delicate perfumed aromas of rosehip syrup, wild berry blossoms and cherries on the nose. Full flavoured, ripe and beautifully balanced with acidity, there’s elegant textured berry fruit on the palate with a twist of raspberry freshness to lift the finish. Deliciously balanced and moreish.
Our love affair with the southern Rhône is both enduring and unswerving. We believe to our marrow that we can make great wine here. And for this reason, we have bought our first vineyard in France, here in the southern Rhône – in the village of Cairanne, you’ll not be surprised to learn! Ten years ago we first glimpsed the potential of the vineyards of Cairanne when we released our 2000 vintage of La Côte Sauvage. Now we have several plots of old vines we can call our own and begin to realise our dream of making even better wine. Over the past decade or so we have built enviable relationships with a network of local growers and we will of course continue to source grapes and wine from their trove of prized vineyards for our full range of Rhône wines.
Boutinot's philosophy is to make wines that are a true expression of their varietal character and perfect partners to food so we select the best vineyards, or sometimes just parcels of wine, to deliver just that. Grapes are sourced from vineyards dedicated to rosé production and specific plots are selected to deliver the right balance and flavour profile.
Grenache Noir 85%, Cinsault 10%, Syrah 5%. Each varietal is vinified separately at low temperature using the rosé de press method to obtain a minimum of colour and maximum of fruit flavour.
Serve with light lunches, grilled fish, vegetable antipasti or as a delicious summer aperitif in the garden.
