Full tasting note and wine making –
Mas d’Alcyon Cotes du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu is a full-bodied textured wine with smooth, ripe tannins. The nose has liquorice and red and black fruit, which carry through to the palate with a salty, mineral edge. Structured yet approachable, the finish is long with delicious hints of coffee and spice.
The grapes for this wine are sourced from vines in the heart of the Plan de Dieu appellation. The blend of Grenache and Syrah undergoes a long maceration and traditional fermentation and ageing in concrete tanks. Some of the Syrah spends fourteen months in demi-muids to add complexity and finesse to the finished wine.
The producer –
Like all good stories, that of Boutinot France is both long and a little bit complicated! Boutinot began as a tiny importer in 1980, specialising in French wines. Paul Boutinot himself began by personally selecting the wines from France, back in the UK he would unload the trailer by hand and then deliver the crates of wines to customers himself. But good things grow and by the end of the decade we had become a bigger and better company. A company that not only sought out great wines but made them too. About ten years later, Boutinot France started in January 1990. The first office was in the middle of the vines in Julienas where it was perfectly located to navigate the Beaujolais and Macon regions on the quest to make beautiful wines.
