Winemaker's Notes:

The Boudinaud family have been winemakers in the western Rhone Valley for 5 generations. They now own 62 acres of vineyards within Cotes du Rhone appellation. This Cote du Rhone is named Cote Jardin which means "garden side" and is ideal for a garden party or picnic with friends.

55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 15% Mourvèdre. This blend offers a smooth, full and jammy texture. It is round and spicy, with lots of character. Perfect for a picnic in your "jardin".

About Cote Jardin:

Thierry and Véronique Boudinaud own Vignobles Boudinaud, located in the tiny commune of Fournès, on the right bank of the Rhône River. They also own Domaine Grange des Rouquette. The Boudinaud’s have been winegrowers and winemakers in the western Rhône Valley for five generations. Thierry traveled extensively in his quest for knowledge about winemaking, working in California, New Zealand and Bordeaux. They now own about 25 hectares of vineyards within the Côtes du Rhône appellation, and farm an additional 25 hectares. Planted on the plateau between the villages of St.-Hilaire, Estézargues and Montfrin are old-vine Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Cunoise. This particular Côtes du Rhône is named Côté Jardin (which means "garden side"), because it is ideal for a "garden" party, or should we say, a picnic with friends! The grapes are carefully chosen from different parcels surrounding Fournès, and picked from vines averaging 18-years of age.
