Tasting Notes: Packed full of flavour - brilliant all year round. A beautiful blend made from the abundant rich flavours of Grenache and a generous serving of Cinsault to give that spicy kick. Pinky tinged grapes which give all the flavour you need in a rosé - a must in summertime but versatile to drink the whole year round.

Producer Details: The Oc, or ‘Pays d’Oc’ as you’ll see it on most labels, refers to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, known by the French as ‘Le Midi’. Geographically the Oc covers an incredibly broad swathe of vineyards from the Rhône delta in the middle of southern France, arcing all the way round to the Spanish border on her Mediterranean seaboard. Planted here are both traditional grape varieties such as Grenache Gris (which makes very fine rosé) and Grenache Noir (try Pasquiers for a full-bodied flavoursome find); as well as the ‘cépages améliorateurs’ (varieties introduced in the last twenty to thirty years) such as Syrah and Merlot for reds, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc for whites.
Eric Monnin, Boutinot’s winemaker responsible for the Languedoc, is constantly on the look-out for producers who have hidden gems, visiting domaines, seeking out new parcels as well as counselling winemakers before the harvest on e.g. softening harsh tannins in reds, or retaining acidity and expressing aromatics in whites. Then once the grapes have been picked, vinified and the wines barely finished, he tastes these ‘brut de cuve’ wines intensively and repeatedly over the next six months in collaboration with Samantha Bailey and Kim Tidy to select and blend the styles they seek and decide on their maturation, optimum bottling month and release date to the market.

In The Vineyard: The Pasquiers range all originate from the Vin de Pays d’Oc and use varietals which have long since been produced in this area but are less well known than the more common single grape varietals which are more commonly produced and sold from this region.
