Paul Boutinot Cuvee Jean-Paul Rouge Vdp de Vaucluse Premier Litre Bottles Screwcap 2000

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this litre bottle of wine from a shop in the Cotswolds for a mere six pounds.It is a Paul Boutinot wine.[www.boutinot,com]. Back in the 80's Paul Boutinot went to France to buy wine for his family's restaurant and is now an international wine merchant with vineyards all over the world.My wine is from the Vaucluse area of the Southern Rhone and was bottled for him.It is a blend of syrah and grenache although I have not been able to find out in what proportions.I started drinking my bottle at the weekend with a bacon and pasta dish.I thought it easy-drinking,fairly fruity and with a hint of spice.Overall I would say it is of reasonable quality and good value for money

Unhappy with the homogenisation of wine styles and poor quality winemaking, Boutinot established production facilities in France in 1989 to provide total control over the winemaking process. This gave us the chance to make wines the way we think they should be made. A production base and recent investment land in South Africa has enabled greater control from vineyard to winery. The development of a state of the art winery at the ‘Waterkloof' estate, built to our specifications will see our vision fulfilled. In addition we work on own production projects in conjunction with like-minded producers around the world, who share our same passion for wine. Wines are vinified and blended by our team of winemakers and advisors to achieve our stylistic ideals. Our strong winemaking philosophy developed to achieve our aim of making quality wines, which are representative of the region and variety at every price point. Minimal intervention in the winery, use of indigenous yeasts where possible, maximum aeration of the reds and judicious use of oak to enhance the wines where necessary are key to our success in making very drinkable and food friendly wines.
