‘Les Deux Barriques’, Cairanne

£27.00

Cairanne with finesse, made only in exceptional vintages

This wine is presented in a wooden box, perfect for gifting.

Made from low-yielding old vine Grenache and Carignan Noir, with Syrah and Mourvèdre grown in the hills above the village of Cairanne. Hand-picked grapes are vinified only by naturally occurring yeasts, aided by manual pipeage and gentle remontage in open topped oak vats (tronconique). Les Deux Barriques is matured for up to 24 months in French oak demi-muids (600 litre barrels); the wine is neither fined or filtered before bottling at Domaine Boutinot in Cairanne.

The hallmark of ‘Les Deux Barriques’ is finesse not power. Explosive aromas and flavours of astonishingly ripe red fruits interlaced with mocha and seductively sweet oaky nuances crescendo in an enticingly smooth and silky palate of intricacy and surprising delicacy.
