The ‘Pays d’Oc’ refers to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. Geographically the Oc covers an incredibly broad swathe of vineyards from the Rhône delta in the middle of southern France to westernmost tip of France’s Mediterranean coast.
In the south western part of the Languedoc, Boutinot’s Guillaume Létang found this parcel of well tended 40 year-old Grenache Noir. Cordon trained (in an area where bush vines are more common) these old vines thrive on silt and sand, their roots buring deep into the soils in search of water. Fully ripened by the Mediterranean sun, once harvested the grapes are destemmed and macerated at cool temperatures prior to fermentation. To fully expresss the ripe black / red fruit flavours of this 100% Grenache Noir the wine was vinified without the use of oak.
