Boutinot Les Six Cairanne Cotes du Rhone Villages
This product is currently sold out.
The Boutinot 'Les Six', Cairanne Cotes du Rhone Villages takes 6 varieties, some familiar, others less so, combines them beautifully to make one superb Cairanne. This is a firm favourite with all of us at Kwoff. In an appellation often dominated by just two varieties, Les Six is a new style of Cairanne which, due to the ancient varieties of Carignan Noir, Cinsault and Counoise included in the assemblage, is also a Cairanne whose heart holds dear the traditions of yesteryear. This vintage of 'Les Six' is exuberantly and lusciously fruity: the six grape varieties each bring nuances of aromas and ripples of texture which fill the palate with wells of depth and propel the plump flavours to a finish which is warming, smooth and immediately appealing. Silky, peppery, elegant and very long on the palate, this is just such a lovely wine that oozes finesse and is perfumed with eau de Cairanne. Although young, it screams out 'drink me!!!'... and how can you resist?! And when you do cave in, Les Six has a natural affinity with herby lamb dishes but would be superb with most grilled meats and roasted vegetable dishes.
