Boutinot, Pasquiers Grenache Noir Vin De Pays d'Oc 2019
Samantha Bailey & Guillaume Letang
This Grenache Noir from the deep South of France is steeped in texture and character. Rich black fruit and sweet spice on the nose with more intense berry fruit and liquorice on the palate.
Guillaume Letang, one of Boutinot's winemakers based in France, cleverly sourced some of the juiciest fruit in the Languedoc to produce this wine. No oak is used in the vinification.
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.
