Boutinot, Pasquiers Grenache Cinsault Rose Vin de Pays d'Oc 2019
Grenache 70%, Cinsault 30%
Samantha Bailey & Guillaume Letang
This luscious and textural blend is very much a food wine; tangy red berry flavours provided by Grenache meld with spice from Cinsault before the dry and fresh finish.
Traditional Languedoc varietals are sourced for the Pasquiers range. For the rose this means ripe, sweetly fruited Grenache and tangy Cinsault. This is a classic rose de presse.
Like all good stories, Boutinot France's is both long and a little bit complicated! Boutinot began as a tiny importer in 1980, specialising in French wines. After 10 years, business had grown and Samantha Bailey packed her bags to set up an office in Burgundy. Today, Boutinot has over 20 employees who take care of production across the whole of France, covering fresh whites and roses from Gascony, mineral wines from Burgundy, and joyful varietal wines from Languedoc among others. We don't use any single 'model' to source our 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 our own vineyards in Cairanne and Saint-Veran. Drawing on the expertise of our 4 winemakers and network of partner growers, we seek to deliver the higest quality to price ratio possible at every price point.
