Boutinot 'La Côte Sauvage', Cairanne Côtes du Rhône Villages, 2009

A wild southern Rhône from Boutinot's "savage slope"

Rich and intense with dark red fruits; it has a complex nose of red peppers, flowers, toasty cinnamon spice, game and aged leather.

Sweet ripe morello cherry fruit, spiciness, liquorice and dark chocolate with fine red-tea tannins and a hint of chili bitterness.

Concentrated, supple and assured. Good.

Drinking nicely now, but will continue to improve; match with red meat and hearty stews.

Around £13 from independents; provided for review.
