Immediately impressive this wine reveals its class from the start. The Boutinot 'Les Coteaux', Cotes du Rhone Villages is a typical Cotes Du Rhone with red berry, brambly fruit underpinned by subtle oaky nuances, lovely sweet spice, warm star anise with a touch of cinnamon. The flavours are densely packed, layer upon layer of primary red fruit are refined by smooth oaky subtleties bound up in a finely woven structure. Flattering as these words are, they just don't do this wine justice as the nose is so very alluring and attractive that you can't wait to taste it!... but you resist because you want more of these lush aromas to wash over you. When you finally take your nose out of the glass and sip and swirl this lovely nectar, the same lusciousness and velvety characters come through on the palate. In the long finish the intensity of the vintage shines as the wine grows̥ in the glass. Les Coteaux is such a well made and together̥ wine. It is made to relish on release but the finely grained tannins are likely to lend longevity so it could be well worth squirrelling some away for a few years. A delicious accompaniment to grilled meats, heart-warming casseroles or a classic shepherd's pie.
