We love French wine, especially those crafted in the Rhône valley. The Rhône is known as "La Capitale des Amoureux" - "The Capital of Lovers"; so it's no wonder that we lust after their wines.

La Ruchette Dorée Côtes du Rhône Blanc has been made by Julien Dugas, a true southern Rhône winemaker. Local botanicals have been illustrated on the front label and reflect the ‘garrigue’ of the Southern Rhône vineyards – rosemary, lavender, olives – a defining scent evocative of the area. The wine is a blend of local grape varieties: Grenache Blanc 60%, Marsanne 20%, Clairette 20%.

The white wines of the southern Rhône are heavily influenced by the warm Mediterranean climate. The long sun-drenched days typically make white wines that are relatively full-bodied and sumptuous.

The nose is pretty and delicate, just hints of hedgerow flowers. The flavours are nuanced and refined rather than overt. Careful use of oak adds texture and vinosity to this very drinkable white.

A lovely apéritif or with light starters and grilled fish.

Julien Dugas, Domaine Boutinot

Julien describes himself as ‘a man on the ground’; always close to the source of his wines and appreciating that this is the key to fantastic wine.

The philosophy of Domaine Boutinot is to make wines which are ready to be enjoyed as soon as they’re released, but which will continue to develop character and flavour when kept for several years.

A cracking wine that was recommended to me in a restaurant. I don’t like new world sauvs or french chardonnays. Partial to a picpoul/gavi/Albariño and this was advised. The first time in a LONG time I’ve said “that’s stunning”
