Le Petit Chat Malin Rouge 75cl
A primary nose of dark fruit leads to a juicy yet savoury palate awash with red berries; cherries and strawberries and a touch of dustiness, soft tannins and a subtle twist of spice.
After 10 years of Boutinot importing wines from France back into the UK, Paul Boutinot started Boutinot France in January 1990, with the first office being in the middle of the vines in Julienas – the perfect location to navigate the regions of Beaujolais and Macon. Since then, the company has since grown and has relocated to Macon. It has over 20 employees taking care of production across the whole of France. This company uses a combination of models to source their wines, from large-scale, high-quality coops to small, family growers and single domains, as well as from their own vineyards in Cairanne and Saint-Vérand. The expertise of four winemakers, including Master Blender Samantha Bailey, and a network of partner growers is drawn on to create their wines.
Le Petit Chat Malin translates as “The Cunning Little Cat”. This wine is made in the sunny climes of the south of France – sun, sea and sardines! The vines are carefully nurtured until the grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness.
