Les Volets Chardonnay

Region
Haute Valle de L'Aude, Southern France, France
Vintage:
2017
Producer:
Boutinot
Grapes:
Viogner
Wine Description:

Cream and honey on the nose. Great balance here: there is an underlying acidity that ensures longevity and elegance whilst intense, opulent stone fruit flavours fill the mouth without being clumsy or heavy.

Tasting Note:

Bright acidity gives way to green apple and brioche notes. Old oak barrels have added texture and given a toasted hazlenut twist. For those looking for a high qualtiy Chardonnay, this punches well above its weight.

Food Suggestion:

Baked chicken with a creamy sauce, wild mushroom risotto or pasta with clams in white wine.

Producer Description

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.
