Our wines of today... And

We currently produce 100% Merlot wines. And for cause, nestled on an limestone clay hillside facing South, our property offers an exceptional terroir, ideal for Merlot.  More than ever concerned, both the quality of our grape varieties and the environment and human health, we have begun since 2014 to work without pesticide and herbicide.  We offer "pleasure" wines, "friends" wines. Round without being bold, fruity and in finesse, the wines of Boutinet will delight your palate and those of your guestsHave a good tasting !

 

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 Bordeaux Clairet is a red wine with a short maceration, the colour of which is between red and rosé. Synonymous with conviviality, it is the ideal companion of your aperitifs or meal with friends. If you like spicy food, the  Bordeaux Clairet is the perfect wine !

A wine of pleasure, less sweet than Rosé, to be tasted fresh, around a barbecue, accompanied by a salad, cold meats or meals. 

Château Boutinet, an affordable Bordeaux red wine.
The Bordeaux wines are usually very powerfull; we wanted to make the difference and offer you a real fruit wine, characteristic of our terroir. We wanted a quality wine, balanced, all in simplicity. A wine that reflects the spirit of Château Boutinet, friendly, shared with those we love.  With its intense red colour and pronounced fruity flavour, the "Château Boutinet" will surely seduce your buds. Vinified in tank, its tannins are supple and silky in the mouth. 
Thalie de Boutinet, the Bordeaux Tradition

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 press wine. It ages 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.

In 2012, driver of the harvesting machine forgot to harvest a small part of a plot. No problem, we decided to harvest by hand. The berrys were crushed underfoot by Esteban, our youngest son, and we decided to carry out a complete vinification in “Vinification Intégrale®”. This technique makes it possible to properly place the harvested grapes in the barrel and to carry out all the vinification operations in it. Thus, the aromatic potential of the grapes is totally preserved, all with a very limited investment. The label was designed by a renowned painter from Buenos Aires, Jorge Hernando Bravo. Only 300 bottles produced for the 2012 & 2015 vintages. L'étoile means, the star, in the meaning of finding our way, our path. 100% Merlot.

… Our wines of tomorrow

Our future white wines

 We have planted about 2,5 acres to produce a dry white wine. Bordeaux grape varieties such as Sauvignon Gris and Sémillon,  will be associated with others of the Loire Valley such as Chenin and Chardonnay. This cuvée will be called Cuvée Jériko, like the name of our lovely dog, our faithful comrade.

 

Another novelty: the vinification will be done in jars or amphore, 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 1500 bottles,
