Boutinot Seguret Coteaux Schisteux 2018
A top quality red from the southern end of the Rhone valley; intense, sensual, elegant, yet packed with exotic spice and soft red fruits. Delicious.
AOP Ctes Rhône Vill. Séguret
What we say
Waves of luscious, almost gamey flavours, layered with oaky notes and backed up by plenty of ripe, dark fruit. The finish is smooth and velvety. A wonderful match for hearty meat dishes, casseroles or even a gourmet barbecue.
What they say
Paler ruby than some earlier vintages due to the extreme proportion of Grenache, the nose is however as explosive, plush and opulent as ever, layered with exotic spice, cracked black pepper and of course streaked with vanilla. The palate is instantly appealing, polished and smooth on entry but steeped in depth and texture as the flavours swirl around, lengthen and delight. The lasting impression is satisfying – a big, opulent and sweet Grenache driven wine with obvious oak quality, great structure, length and finish.

About the producer Boutinot
Our love affair with the southern Rhône is both enduring and unswerving. We believe to our marrow that we can make great wine here. And for this reason, we have bought our first vineyard in France, here in the southern Rhône. Ten years ago we first glimpsed the potential of the vineyards of Cairanne now we have several plots of old vines we can call our own and begin to realise our dream of making even better wine.
