Wednesday Flight: La Boutanche, High-Quality Natural Wine at a Fair Price

Swirl Wine Bar
Getting there
3143 Ponce De Leon St, New Orleans, LA

For our Wednesday Night Flight this week we'll pour a flight of La Boutanche wines from importer Selection Massale who started this label when they noticed the lack of good natural wine in the $20ish range. Instead of throwing up their hands, they started talking with their producers about what they wanted - native yeast fermentations, low or zero SO2 additions - pure unadulterated juice that would be a great introduction to natural wine. And it didn’t take long for them to find winemakers who were willing to partner with them on this project. ​The first run of the "La Boutanche" was back in 2012 and their fun colorful labels have been synonymous with high-quality natty juice at a fair price ever since. There are currently 3 of the wines in the market that we will pour, a pet nat, a Melon and a Trollinger, plus we'll add another wine from Selection Massale, an organic Corsican red. If you'd like a little something to snack on with your wine, resident cheesemonger Casey Foote will select and present a pairing plate ($10 with flight, $15 without the flight). No standing in line for our Wednesday flights - you sit at a table, we come to you and pour tableside complete with lots of educational info on what you are drinking. The flight of 4 wines is $20 - reservations are highly recommended as we can only seat walk-ins if space allows. All wines and cheeses are available for purchase to have at Swirl or you can take them to go. You can make your reservations here. Class Policies:-As with all of our tastings and classes we ask that you not wear perfume, cologne or any other strong scents that could interfere with the wine's aromas for you and those around you.-Refunds can be made with a minimum 3 days advance notice. Credit cannot be given towards future classes.
