We say…..A real winner for red wine lovers!  An ideal accompaniment to big hearty casseroles or juicy red meat dishes.

Les Coteaux Schisteux from Domaine Boutinot has fruity, fresh and powerful characteristics and is produced under the Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation.  The vines are high up the “slopes of schiste” in the rugged mountainous terroir of Séguret in the southern Loire Valley.

The vineyard is east facing and sits at high altitude with stony, argillaceous limestone terraces.  It is predominantly planted with Grenache with small areas of Syrah and the minimum age of the vines is 50 years, with many being even older.  The vines benefit from the morning sun and even ripening temperatures which all helps to produce lovely juicy grapes.

At harvest, the grapes can only be picked by hand in this unforgiving terroir.  Traditional time honoured winemaking techniques are adopted such as a long cuvasion period aided only by natural yeasts and gentle remontage to release all the potential of the grapes and their skins.  The wine then matures for around 2 years in French oak barrels before being bottled.

Les Coteaux Schisteux Séguret is a very impressive classic red wine and a real leader from the Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation with its extra level of quality, intensity and character.  It goes very well with big hearty casseroles and juicy meat dishes.  Our Magnum, which is the equivalent of 2 standard sized wine bottles, is a real winner for red wine lovers.  Medium to full-bodied and well balanced it is a wine that improves with age.  Share a bottle over dinner or spoil someone you know who appreciates a good red!
