Boutinot ‘Les Deux Barriques’ (in wooden gift box), 2012

We produce 'Les Deux Barriques' only when we feel that the vintage has given something special, only when the results of our tastings show that we have two outstanding barrels or 'deux barriques' that merit bottling in their own right. This was the case in 2005, 2010 and 2011. 2012's is also one such vintage which is presented in a single wooden gift box.


60% Grenache Noir | 20% Syrah | 10% Mourvédre | 10% Carignan Noir

How it's made

Made from low-yielding old vines of Grenache and Carignan Noir, Syrah and Mourvédre grown in the hills above the village of Cairanne in the southern Rhône valley. Hand picked grapes are vinified only by naturally occurring yeasts, aided by manual pigeage and gentle remontage in open topped oak vats (tronconique). Les Deux Barriques is matured for 24 months in a new French oak demi-muid (6001 barrels); the wine is neither fined or filtered before bottling at Domaine Boutinot in Cairanne.

Tasting Notes

The hallmark of 'Les Deux Barriques' is finesse not power. Explosive aromas and flavors 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.

Food Match

Great match with robustly flavored dishes – Italian sausage with puy lentils. To preserve its unique and natural flavor 'Les Deux Barriques' was neither fined nor filtered before bottling, so please store below 14C and decant before serving.
