Our wines of today... And
The Clairet de Boutinet
This wine derives its name from the Claret of Bordeaux, born at the time of Eleanor of Aquitaine in the 12th century. It is a wine typical of the Bordeaux region, tradition that we wanted to perpetuate. Le Clairet is a red wine with a short fermentation, the colour of which is between red and rosé. Synonymous with conviviality, it is the ideal companion of your aperitifs or meal with friends. A wine of pleasure, less sweet than Rosé, to be tasted fresh, around a barbecue, accompanied by a salad, cold meats or meals.
Our special cuvée, the Thalie de Boutinet, is a fruity, fresh wine, combined with a fine and elegant woody. A 100% merlot wine, assembled with part of our presses. It is raised in barrel of a single wine for 15 months. We avoided the new barrels to create a beautiful balance between the fruit and the wood.
… Our wines of tomorrow
Our future white wines
In order to diversify our range of products and offer you even more pleasure, we will soon offer you a white wine. We will plant about 5 acres to produce this new wine. Bordeaux grape varieties such as Sauvignon Gris and Sémillon, which will be associated with others of the Loire Valley such as Chenin and Chardonnay. This cuvée will be called Cuvée Jéricho, like the name of our dod, our faithful comrade.
Staying in the spirit that is ours, the production will be participatory. You will be able to follow the entire cycle of the vine and recover the year following the 300 bottles of your production. Pruning, drawing of wood, folding, manual harvesting will no longer have any secrets for you.
Another novelty: the vinification will be done in jars made with the land of the parcel, like the famous "Dolia", a kind of amphorae already used in Judea a few thousand years before Christ to precisely vinify and conserve the wine. We are based on a production of 2000 to 3000 bottles, one of which is a only one grape variety and the other in a blend of 4 which will be a special cuvée.
The first harvest is announced for 2021.
