Wine Note

Boutinot Cairanne 'Les Six'

“Made with six different varieties - nothing compared with Châteuneuf-du-Pape's 14, but still quite a large number - this is a superb, modern, Grenache-dominated Cairanne, which carries its comparatlvely high alcohol lightly, thanks to the structure and acidity of the 2016 vintage. Spicy tapenade and wild herb aromas segue into a smooth, deftly oaked palate with very fine tannins and a core of sweet, tarry blackberry and blueberry fruit. Outstanding value.”– Tim Atkin. 93 points Wine of The Week 19th March 2018

'Les Six' is a blend of six grape varieties, co-fermented together in pairs to show how the rare and ancient varietiesof Carignan Noir, Cinsault and Counoise can enhance the more popular southern Rhône varieties of Grenache Noir, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The wine is vinified (using traditional methods in) and matured in tronconique (6,0000 litre oak vats) for up to twelve months in the Cairanne cellars of Domaine Boutinot Rhône.
