Domaine du Roc des Boutires has been owned by the Parinet family of Château du Moulin-à-Vent since 2016. They have injected energy and dynamism into this domaine and are now making outstanding wines. Situated in the heart of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation, the domaine takes its name both from its proximity to the excellent ‘Aux Bouthières’ vineyard and the famous ‘Roche de Solutré’, a limestone escarpment which overlooks the commune of Solutré-Pouilly. ‘La Roche de Solutré’ is testament to the extraordinary geological richness of the surrounding vineyards and has become an emblem of the region. So impressive is its stature, the locals have nicknamed it the ‘Sphinx of the Mâconnais’.
Mâcon-Solutré is a very small appellation, measuring just 50 hectares in total. The grapes for this wine come from 0.6 hectares planted across three, east-facing vineyards in Solutré-Pouilly. The vines are 45 years old and are planted on predominantly clay soils at altitudes ranging between 210 - 430 metres above sea level, a position which lends great freshness to the finished wines.
This Mâcon-Solutré is expressive on the nose with notes of stone fruits, lemon zest and vanilla. It is richly textured on the palate with lifted acidity, which brings great balance and freshness to the finished wine.
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Region: Mâconnais, Burgundy
