Les Six Cairanne
- Cairanne, Rhone, France
- Syrah/Shiraz, Mourvedre / Monastrell, Grenache Noir
Les Six is a blend of six different grape varieties. Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre, Carignan, Counoise and Cinsault. Full-flavoured and complex with the typical freshness and elegance coming from our hillside vineyards, layers of fruit are interwoven and underpinned by a plush texture and supple tannins which propel the scents and flavours of peppery red and black fruits to a vibrant, expressive finish.
The slopes above the village of Cairanne are be-decked with treasure troves of well-established vineyards steeped in the classic terroir of ‘agrilo-calcaire’ (chalky clay) and bristling with parcels of low-yielding.
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.
