DOMAINE MIKAEL BOUTIN

LVT  2017  r  Organic wines, with massale selction of the vines. Mikaël’s 2 hectares stem in part from his grandparents, in part from his great uncle. His father was an agriculteur (as opposed to a viticulteur) at Rasteau, and worked at the Cave de Rasteau, before finishing his career at the Domaine de la Girardière. It was his uncle who worked the family vineyard.

Mikaël worked as a mechanic before starting at 20 working in southern Rhône vineyards. He then studied viticulture at Carpentras before moving on to the organic Domaine Jean David at Séguret, which stimulated the urge for him to make wine. When his uncle retired in 2008, Mikaël worked two hectares from his parents, and after he left the Cave de Rasteau in 2010, his first wine was made in 2011. In those days his other job was the number 2 in charge of the vineyards at Domaine de la Vieille Julienne at Châteauneuf-du-Pape, while since 2012 he has been maître de chai at the organic Clos de Caveau at Vacqueyras.

Quality took a big leap forward from the 2013 vintage, which was vinified in his own premises near the ramparts of Rasteau – the wines are much fresher, more detailed. The 2013 was STGT Rasteau, a ***(*) wine
