|Dry, Rosé, Light Bodied, Fresh, Delicate, Red Fruits
Lieux Perdus Pinot Noir Rosé is a light, dry rosé with an attractive pink hue. Strawberries and cream aromas pave the way to a palate of creamy, red fruit flavours, capped off by hints of blackcurrant. Enjoy it paired with fresh seafood and light salads, perfect for a sunny day on the Mediterranean (we can only dream...)
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
Lieux Perdus translates to ‘Lost Places’…we wanted this wine to express escapism and a feeling of being free-spirited. We commissioned an artist, Timothy Birch, to create the artwork that was able to capture this, and our in-house design team turned it into a label. Grapes are sourced from vineyards near the famous "Bassin de Thau" and the village of Pezenas. This delicate rosé is made using the classic rosé de presse method combined with the expertise of white wine vinifcation; Pinot Noir grapes are gently pressed to extract the colour without tannin and cool vinified to capture all the delicate aromatics and flavours. To maintain freshness the wine is then bottled under screwcap.
