Les Pivoines Beaujolais Villages
A delicious vibrant Beaujolais. Supple cherry and raspberry fruit on nose and palate.
Juicy, fresh and approachable - just what you want from Beaujolais Villages. Samantha Bailey of Boutinot's French Winemaking team works tirelessly to select this wine which is made from whole bunch Gamay grapes using the traditional carbonic maceration technique.
Exhuberant fruity red wine with juicy crushed strawberries, cherry characters and an intriguing savoury twist. The palate is soft and approachable with vibrant acidity and a mouthwatering floral, morello cherry finish.
Try with a charcuterie platter, BBQ sausages or even with a hearty salad (salads beaujolaise = poached egg and fried bacon strips on green salad ...and don't forget the garlic!). Excellent wine for a summer picnic or alfresco dining.
Boutinot started life in Greater Manchester in 1972 when Paul Boutinot begin to collect wines from France and bring back to Manchester to sell at his parents restaurant. Paul's reputation quickly begin to grow and it wasn't long before other restaurants were asking for him to sell them wine and the company was started in 1980 as a wine supplier.
Boutinot have furthered their reputation for great value wines by starting to produce wines themselves. They have partnered with Italian producer Adria Vini, have their own vineyard holdings and winery in France and vineyards in South Africa, and now a large percentage of Boutinot's portfolio is their own production.
