Boutinot ‘Les Coteaux Schisteux’, Séguret Côtes du Rhône Villages 6 Bottle Case 75cl
High up the ‘slopes of schist’ in the rugged mountainous terroir of Séguret lies a single vineyard so predominantly planted with Grenache Noir (intermingled only here and there with some Syrah) that the resulting wine – Les Coteaux Schisteux – comes close to being one of the purest expressions of Grenache Noir in the southern Rhône valley.
This Séguret is ageing gracefully in bottle and reveals intoxicating aromas of intensely ripe fruit (figs and plums) married to subtly-integrated oak. The palate is savoury yet fulsome; prunes and game imbued with all the wild herbs of the southern Rhône.
Big hearty casseroles and juicy meat dishes.
