Refreshing soft berry fruit nose flows into the palate to offer flavours of wild strawberry in spring woodlands. Bright and exciting, this wine is both enticing and elegant, pretty with finesse
This wine will pair beautifully with lean meats, carpaccio or a classic roast chicken. Mild cheeses such as brie would also work really well.
About the Producer:
For over three decades Boutinot has been based in the Mâconnais in southern Burgundy; relying upon Samantha Bailey to craft and blend wines which honestly express the tapestry of the local terroir. With a ‘back of the hand’ knowledge of the effect of each slope and soil type on a wine, they dared to imagine owning an estate, yet such opportunities are rare in Burgundy as domaines pass from one generation to the next.
Finally they succeeded in buying two key plots in the best climats of Saint-Véran, together with a gravity fed winery (in need of renovation) and a 300 year old house made of the local honey stone.
A place we call GENETIE, in honour of the mysterious name they found etched into the stone of a listed pillar within the building. While they renovate the cellar and building we'll continue to discover interesting wines that truthfully represent the diverse terroir of the Mâconnais.
