Domaine Petit-Roy Bourgogne Blanc 'Les Boutières'
Seiichi Saito of Domaine Petit-Roy is based in Chorey-les-Beaune where he has crafted precise and exhilarating wines since 2017. After attending the prestigious Beaune wine school in 2006, Seiichi went on to apprentice for over a decade at some of the finest domaines in Burgundy including Mugnier, Leflaive, Rousseau and Bize. Applying everything he has learned during this time to the 2 hectares of vines that comprise Domaine Petit-Roy, Seiichi farms biodynamically, and in the cellar favours whole cluster fermentations, gentle extraction, no new oak or filtration, and sulphur only at bottling where absolutely necessary.
Les Boutières is Chardonnay from a tiny 0.09 hectare plot of vines grown in clay, limestone and marl soils in the lieu-dit of 'Aux Boutières' in Savigny-les-Beaune. Directly pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts for over 2 months in old oak before bottling without filtration or sulphur. Beautifully textured with searing citrus fruit broadening out on the palate to include notes of hazelnuts, pastry and spice.
