The Rhône valley in southern France offers something for every palate. From the deeply coloured and spicy Syrah’s of the North; ripe, sun-drenched red blends in the south to the aromatic and fresh whites that span the entire valley. It’s the ancient winemaking tradition, diversity in terroirs, grape varieties and styles that make the Rhone Valley worthy of our regional spotlight for this release.
Boutinot La Fleur Solitaire Cotes Du Rhône Blanc 2019 750ml
Tasting Note: Proper white Côtes du Rhône; fresh, medium-bodied, vinous. The nose is pretty and delicate, with a waft of fennel tops and hints of hedgerow flowers. The flavours are nuanced and refined rather than overt. Careful use of oak adds texture and structure without masking the freshness of this very drinkable white.
