Boutinot, Vouvray Les Coteaux Tufiers Demi-Sec 2018
Chenin Blanc 100%
Samantha Bailey & Guillaume Letang
A delicious off-dry style of Chenin Blanc with aromas of just-picked walnuts, a hint of lime and a sappy melon skin note. The palate is honeyed with cooked apple and agave. The sweetness is perfectly integrated and balanced, resulting in a refreshing wine with good length.
We source our Vouvray Les Coteaux Tufiers directly from growers in the heart of the Vouvray region and have been doing so for over 20 years. Grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness to ensure a good sugar level which is necessary for the Demi-Sec style. Cool vinification and �levage on fine lees to ensure maximum concentration.
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 ros�s 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-V�ran. 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.
