About the Producer
Like all good stories, that of Boutinot France is both long and a little bit complicated! Boutinot began as a tiny importer in 1980, specialising in French wines. Paul Boutinot himself began by personally selecting the wines from France, back in the UK he would unload the trailer by hand. And deliver the crates of wines to customers himself. But good things grow and by the end of the decade they had become a bigger and better company. A company that not only sought out great wines but made them too. 10 years later, Boutinot France started in January 1990. The first office was in the middle of the vines in Julienas; perfectly located to navigate the Beaujolais and Macon regions on the quest to make beautiful wines.
Vineyard and Winery
With a return to Gascony IGP for the 2021 vintage, this cuvée is made of equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot with a touch of the local Tannat grape variety to add body. The secret of the winemaking is to capture all the delicate aromatics and flavours of the red grape varieties but then to cool vinify the pale-coloured juice with all the expertise of white wine vinification to create a crisp, refreshing and easy drinking wine.
