How it's made

The rolling hills between the scattered medieval towns and villages of Gascony are predominately white wine country. Designated Pays de Gascogne in 1982, it was to here that Boutinot were drawn to source white wines from the locally grown Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes. Vines are trained using the Guyot system and vigorous grape selection is used to capture the fresh aromatics and flavor of the Blanc de Blancs from the southwest province of Gascony. On delivery to the cellar, the grapes are cooled by gas (CO2), undergo maceration pelliculaire for 5-15 hours, then pneumatique pressing and debourbage a froid. Alcoholic fermentation is started by cultured yeast and once fermentation is complete, the wine is conserved on the lees to retain maximum freshness.
