    Boutinot

    Cotes de Gascogne Blanc ‘Cuvee Jean Paul’

    France, Southwest, Gascony

    White

    Winery Overview

    Established in 1980, Boutinot has grown to become one of the leading UK based distributors of quality wines from around the world. France is one of Boutinot's production hubs, where they manage the creation of various labels. Boutinot's winemakers work by both vinifying fruit from their own vineyards, and by working with partner growers with whom they have long-standing relationships. Many of these French wines are produced from single domaines, each with an individual identity Boutinot is very particular about what they do and who they work with to ensure every bottle contains only the best wine sourced from the finest grapes. Being a producer enables quality control of each wine that they craft – a unique advantage Boutinot has over other distributors.

    Viticulture

    The rolling hills between the scattered medieval towns and villages of Gascony are predominately white wine country. Designated Pays de Gascogne in 1982, it was to here that Boutinot was drawn to source his white wines from the locally grown Colombard and Ugni Blanc grape varieties. Vines are trained using the Guyot system and vigorous grape selection is used to capture the fresh aromatics and flavour of this Blanc de Blancs from the southwest province of Gascony.

    Vinification

    On delivery to the cellar, the grapes are cooled by gas (CO2), undergo maceration pelliculaire for 5-15 hours, then pneumatique pressing, and debourbage a froid. Alcoholic fermentation is started by cultured yeast and once fermentation is complete, the wine is conserved on the lees to retain maximum freshness.

    Tasting Notes

    A fresh nose of lime, basil, freshly cut green grass and guavas. The medium-bodied palate continues with more green fruits and flowers; figs and tobacco flowers.
