Wine Description:

Les Oliviers Merlot - Mourvedre is made by Boutinot , a blend of 80% Merlot, 20% Mourvedre each from a single plot. Pays d'Oc in southern France is known for producing ripe, luscious fruit and it is the addition of the Mourvedre that makes this wine extra interesting.

Tasting Note:

Brightly perfumed fruit, a hint of lavender, then classic merlot flavours: ripe red summer berries, plums and damsons. Mourvèdre shows its grip with warm spice and a green, herby edge on the finish.

Food Suggestion:

Can be enjoyed with or without food, although it would happily partner hearty pastas and Mediterrannean dishes flavoured with tomatoes, olives or anchovies.

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.

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.
