This unique 50/50 blend of Ordinal Piquepoul, Roussanne hails from the Languedoc near the small city of Pezenas.  The production team sought to craft a fresh and vibrant white with a twist, and achieved their goal with the dynamic pairing of Piquepoul and Roussanne.  The former provides lightness and refreshment, while the latter contributes intricate notes.

Ordinal Piquepoul, Roussanne is a wine of notable vigour and crispness.  The aromatic bouquet of white flowers is enhanced by a vibrant food-friendly acidity, resulting in an undeniably invigorating, thirst-quenching white wine.

This is perfect to accompany a wide selection of fresh seafood or any summer salad.

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

Upon arrival at the winery the grapes are pressed and fermented in stainless steel vessels at low temperatures.  This helps to retain the primary fruit aromas and flavours as well as freshness.  The wine is then aged for 6 months on fine lees to provide structure and complexity.
