This Mâcon-Solutré is expressive on the nose with aromas of mango, peach and Mirabelle plum, with fresh notes of lemon zest. It is richly textured on the palate with lifted acidity, which brings great balance and freshness to the finished wine.

The domaine has 4.2 hectares of Chardonnay planted across Pouilly and the surrounding villages. Mâcon-Solutré is a very small appellation, measuring just 50 hectares in total. The grapes for this wine come from two south/south east-facing vineyards in Solutré-Pouilly: 'Au Mont' and 'Aux Combes'. The vines are 45 years old and are planted on predominantly clay-limestone soils at altitudes ranging between 210 - 430 metres above sea level, a position that lends great freshness to the finished wines.

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
