Boutinot Savoir-Faire d Autrefois Mourvedre 2017
Selected from two vineyard plots in the southernmost part of the Rhône valley called 'Le Terminus' and 'Beauchêne', Savoir-Faire d'Autrefois showcases our skill in taming the wild Mourvèdre grape. This particular cuvée was from fifteen-year-old vines, aged in a total of 22 one-year-old barrels of French oak for eighteen months.
An intriguing nose of tobacco leaf, cloves and leather are followed by a luxuriant yet sleek and supple palate. Dark cherries and chocolate are interwoven with fine French oak and supported by firm tannins.
Most definitely a food wine. With its rich and spicy flavour, this is a perfect match for braised and stewed meats and grilled vegetables.
