Producer Information

For over three decades Boutinot has been based in the Maconnais in southern Burgundy; relying upon Samantha Bailey to craft and blend wines which honestly express the tapestry of the local terroir. With a ‘back of the hand’ knowledge of the effect of each slope and soil type on a wine, we dared to imagine owning an estate, yet such opportunities are rare in Burgundy as domaines pass from one generation to the next.
Finally we succeeded in buying two key plots in the best climats of Saint-Veran, together with a gravity fed winery (in need of renovation) and a 300 year old house made of the local honey stone.
A place we call GENETIE, in honour of the mysterious name we found etched into the stone of a listed pillar within the building. While we renovate the cellar and building we'll continue to discover interesting wines that truthfully represent the diverse terroir of the Maconnais.

Chardonnay,

Production

From a 12 hectare plot in the village of Bussieres, to the south of the Maconnais region, with an average vine age of about 40 years. The soil is classic argilo-calcaire that suits Chardonnay so well and that lends elegance and finesse to the final wines.

10% of the wine is barrel aged to give a more textural, slightly creamy element.

Tasting Notes

A little gem worth discovering. "I drink it at home" (Samantha Bailey) - the best recommendation we can give it!

A classic Chardonnay from Southern Burgundy - fine buttery and floral notes on the nose and a wine of substance and finesse on the palate. Some creamy textural notes up front reveal the discreet presence of oak, whilst on the finish there is some underlying minerality and a hint of citrus zestiness that provides long lasting flavours.

An admirable accompaniment to the classic Burgundian dish of poulet a la creme (chicken in creamy sauce), or a shellfish chowder. Great with vegetable risotto and pan fried fish, too.
