Domaine du Roc des Boutires

Burgundy, France

Overview

In the village of Pouilly, in the heart of Pouilly-Fuissé AOC, lies the Domaine du Roc des Boutires. It originates from two names: the proximity with Roche de Solutré, which is an emblem of the appellation and a testament to the extraordinary geologic richness of the vineyard; and its settlement in the very heart of one of the best terroirs of the appellation, ‘Aux Bouthières’. In ancient French vocabulary, a ‘boutière’ means a secondary road that mule skinners used for the transportation of oils and wines in remote parts of the country. The vineyard is actually 5 kilometers west from the ancient Roman track of Via Agrippa, on a very small road which is now leading to the village of Solutré, the hills of the Mâconnais and the plains of the Charolais.
