WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
‘The 2019 vintage was the sunniest since 1990. An exceptionally sunny February encouraged early vegetation, but early cold Spring nights were a challenge. As a result, the vintage started a little later. In all, the wines are very aromatic and fine, with a great freshness.
A bright, vibrant color with hints of yellow and gold. Aromas of peach and honey fill the nose. The wine’s acidity is well balanced with citrus notes of lime and orange peel adding layers of flavor.’ Edouard Parinet.
In the village of Pouilly, in the middle of the Pouilly-Fuissé AOC lies Domaine du Roc des Boutires. The winery’s name draws on both terroir and tradition: its proximity with the Roche de Solutré, an emblem of the appellation and a testament to the extraordinary geologic richness of this vineyard; as well as the domaine’s settlement in the very heart of one of the best terroirs of the appellation – “Aux Bouthières.” In the ancient French vocabulary, a “boutière” was a secondary road that mule skinners used for the transportation of oils and wines in remote parts of the country. The vineyard of Domaine du Roc des Boutires is only 5 kilometers (3.12 miles) west of the ancient Roman track of Via Agrippa, on a very small road which now leads to the village of Solutré, the hills of the Mâconnais and the plains of the Charolais.
