Tasting Notes: Fresh, racy and instantly appealing. Lovely grassy aromatic nose balanced by ripe tropical melon and pink grapefruit, the palate is softer and creamier than you would expect with real depth of flavour finishing with a fresh, zippy lemon tang.

Producer Details: In south west France (south of Bordeaux), Gascony is the home of foie gras, d’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers; more importantly for Boutinot, it has been the source of our white bistro wines for the past twenty five years. Gascony is cool enough to produce white wines which are streaked with refreshing acidity and sparkle with zesty aromatics, perfect for Cuvée Jean Paul or Mas de Vigneron. Samantha Bailey, Boutinot’s winemaker responsible for Gascony, also sources Sauvignon-esque Colombard here for our Champs du Moulin, La Révolution and Azura single varietal wines.
Tasting raw wines in the wintry months of December and January in unheated and purposefully chilly cellars is challenging, particularly just after breakfast, but a task Samantha has championed. The task continues throughout the year as Samantha rigorously blends all the components she has retained to maintain consistency across the frequent bottlings we make throughout the year to keep our wines fresh and long-lived.

In The Vineyard: Grapes are machine harvested in the early hours of the morning. Grapes from older parcels of vines are picked and vinified separately.

In The Winery: 80% Gros Manseng with its tropical tang and 20% Colombard adding freshness and zip – sheer delight and multiple layers of flavours. Cooling of the grapes prior to pressing, vinification using temperature controlled tanks and neutral yeast are elements essential to the purity of flavour in the finished wine.
