Olivier Minot Description
Winemakers Corinne and Olivier Minot welcome you to their house in the heart of their vineyards, in the Land of the Golden Stones.
Farming: Organic, Low added SO2
Fresh-picked cherry and raspberry flavors mingle with subtle notes of black tea, tilled soil, and forest floor. A light, dry and chillable bottling of organic Beaujolais in a liter-sized bottle. Charming and sophisticated yet totally quaffable.
Winemaker Olivier Minot is the force behind this incredible cuvée. 100% gamay from Southern Beaujolais, the grapes are harvested from 90 year old vines, fermented and aged in concrete tanks, and bottled with minimal sulfur.
The first run of Boutanche was back in 2012. As you may remember, it had a bright pink label that read ‘La Boutanche’ with pig in a Hawaiian shirt polishing off a glass of wine above that, and not much else. The juice inside was what mattered (at the time it was Gamay made by Maison PUR), and the juice inside seriously overdelivered for its low retail price. It was an immediate hit. Flash forward to today and there are many different Boutanche: the grasshopper (Andi Knauss), the fish (Frantz Saumon), the pig (Olivier Minot), the French bulldog (Quentin Bourse), the gorilla (Martin Texier), you name it. We are committed to expanding the line and having Boutanche be the first bottle you reach for around $20, either if it’s your daily go-to wine or if it will be your first natural wine experience. Boutanche is now synonymous with high-quality natty juice at a fair price, so stay tuned for new releases under this label.
