Boutinot Les Six Carianne
Grape varieties: Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Counoise & Carignan Noir
The six varieties, some familiar (Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre) and others less so (Cinsault, Counoise and Carignan Noir) are hand-picked and hand-sorted to ensure perfect ripeness. After fermentation takes place in 6,000 litre oak vats aided by natural yeasts, Les Six is matured in oak for further 10 months. This is a new style of Cairanne which, thanks to the ancient varieties included in the assemblage, is also a Cairanne whose heart holds dear the traditions of yesteryear.
Tasting Note: Full-flavoured and complex with the typical freshness and elegance coming from our hillside vineyards. Layers of fruit are interwoven and underpinned by a plush texture and supple tannins which propel the scents and flavours of peppery red and black fruits to a vibrant, expressive finish. This wine has a natural affinity with herby lamb dishes, but would be superb with most grilled meats and roasted vegetables.
