Boutinot La Fleur Solitaire Cotes du Rhone Blanc
This product is currently sold out.
Another stunner from Boutinot, the 'La Fleur Solitaire', Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a proper white Cotes du Rhone - fresh, medium-bodied and vinous. The nose is pretty and delicate, just hints of hedgerow flowers. The flavours are nuanced and refined rather than overt, these are not demonstrative grape varieties and need gentle handling to maintain the delicate flavours and freshness. You get a pleasant mix of candied fruits, white pear and just a hint of lemon. Careful use of oak adds texture and vinosity to this very drinkable white. Being such a delicate wine, it makes it a lovely aperitif or with light starters and grilled fish.
