2015 Dom La Boutiniere Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Rouge Tradition

$41.00

Domaine La Boutiniere dates back to 1920, respecting Châteauneuf-Du-Pape winemaking traditions for four generations. The domaine covers 18 hectares with vines aging 10-120 years old. This elegant and traditional bottling is predominantly Grenache blended with Cinsault, Mouvèdre and Syrah made from vines that average 70 years old. Raspberry balsamic aromas fill the glass, with a backbone of vanilla and spice that translates into a long, velvety, and satisfying red wine.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is located in France's Southern Rhône valley. It was one of the first appellations to achieve AOC status, as it was also the region which helped define the AOC laws. Today the appellation makes red and white wines. These wines can be made from any of 14 permitted varieties, however it is Grenache that dominates the blends for the reds, while Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Clairette dominate the white blends. The region itself is very special, as it is primarily located in an ancient riverbed. The stones that cover this river bed, called galettes, absorb heat during the daytime and warm the vines at night, enabling them to ripen more intensely. This ripeness combines with the natural earthiness of the blends, and a distinct herbal character typical of the region, to yield truly stellar and individual wines.
