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..

Today, Boutinot’s French office has relocated to Macon, and has over 20 employees who take care of production across the whole of France, covering fresh whites and rosés from Gascony, mineral wines from Burgundy, and joyful varietal wines from Languedoc among others. There is no single model to source the wines; instead, a combination of sources are used, from large-scale, high-quality co-ops to small, family growers and single domaines, as well as their own vineyards in Cairanne and Saint-Vérand. Drawing on the expertise of their four in-house winemakers and a network of partner growers, they seek to deliver the highest quality-to-price ratio possible for every wine.

Vineyard and Winery

From across the southern Rhône Boutinot' Winemakers seek out varieties ideally suited to rosé, these are often growing in vineyards where wild lavender, rosemary and olives are abundant. These local botanicals have been illustrated on the front label and reflect the typical ‘garrigue’ plants of the Southern Rhône vineyards. Specific plots of these varieties - Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah - are selected to deliver the right balance and flavour profile. La Ruchette Dorée Rosé is made using traditional methods, including gentle pressing and vinification at cool temperatures to extract as much aroma, flavour and delicate colour as possible with very little tannin.
