Famed for its red wine, white wines have a long heritage in the southern Rhône valley, where the locals enjoy an occasional glass at the start of a warm evening. La Fleur Solitaire is therefore a solitaire amongst the rubies of our Boutinot Rhône range; a white Côtes du Rhône made from traditional southern Rhône white grape varieties.

Following an experiment with a micro cuvée crafted from seven barrels back in 2009, we now source from selected vineyards in the southern Rhône. Each is picked separately in the cooler daylight hours for gentle pressing the same morning and fermented at a low temperature. To a base of Grenache Blanc we blend Viognier, with co-fermented pairs of Roussanne / Marsanne and Bourboulenc / Clairette (for freshness). Over the years we have increased the proportion vinified in stainless steel, with approximately a quarter vinified and matured for 6 months in 300l French oak barrels of 2nd to 3rd fill.

Proper white Côtes du Rhône; fresh, medium-bodied, vinous.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 aperitif or with light starters and grilled fish.
