The hallmark of ‘Les Deux Barriques’ is finesse not power. Explosive aromas and flavours 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.

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. 2015 is one such vintage which saw the inaugural release of selected wines from Cairanne in the southern Rhône valley as Cru, in recognition of the quality of the vineyards and winemaking.

Made from low-yielding old vines of Grenache and Carignan Noir, Syrah and Mourvèdre grown in the hills above the village of Cairanne in the southern Rhône valley. Hand picked grapes are vinified only by naturally occuring yeasts, aided by manual pigeage and gentle remontage in open topped oak vats (tronconique). Les Deux Barriques is matured for 24 months in new French oak demi-muid (600l barrels); the wine is neither fined or filtered before botting at Domaine Boutinot in Cairanne.

Great match with robustly flavoured dishes - Italian sausage with puy lentils. To preserve its unique and natural flavour Les Deux barriques was neither fined nor filtered before bottling, so please store below 14°C and decant before serving.
