Boutinot 'Le Cru aux Roches Pourries', La Cote du Py, Morgon
The nose is perfumed with aromas of strawberry and raspberry. The palate
is vibrant and fruity with hints of spruce and a beetrooty, earthy
'Roches Pourries' refers to the crumbled, flaky rock rich in iron oxide
and manganese which imparts a red ochre colour to the soil of the prized
vineyard of Côte de Py. Here 55 year-old Gamay grapes are harvested by
hand from the best vineyard in the cru, and only the best clusters of
grapes are selected for the wine.
Traditional vinification with semi-carbonic maceration of the grape
clusters and a 10 day immersion of the cap in 'grilled' tanks. Fantastic with game or other strong flavoured meats.
