Sur la Côte Rosé, IGP Méditerranée 2020


Boutinot France

We launched this as “Summer in a Glass” – now it’s Autumn. Still drinking well – just 2 pallets of good quality Thau Rose in fresh vintage

Meet the producer

Like all good stories, that of Boutinot France is both long and a little bit complicated! Boutinot began as a tiny importer...



We wanted to bring you an exciting pair of fresh and vibrant wines in our portfolio, so we set our winemakers Guillaume Letang (Languedoc) and Julien Dugas (Rhone) a challenge: find a white and a rose that would complement each other if on the same table, and which would pair with a variety of food whilst tasting amazing. Most importantly we wanted to depict interesting terroirs and climates. For the rosé Julien created an utterly delicious blend from the Mediterannée. He picked an up-and-coming region to find something that would tick the boxes “I went for IGP Mediterannée because the style of the wine over there is very easy-going. Reminds you of a holiday in the South of France. Perfect associations with rosé”. He selected four different Grenache bases that would give perfect fruitiness and lightness and blended it with 15% Syrah for some delicate spicy notes to give some character to the wine. The windy climate really helped with an overall crisp body.

Tasting notes

It’s packed with ripe strawberry, a hint of fresh grapefruit and a soft texture. Actually, it felt like a holiday in the South of France… Easily better than rainy Manchester!

Food match

Pair with fresh seafood and light salads, preferably enjoyed sitting under an umbrella in the sun, overlooking the Mediterranean.
