Distinguishing features At the estate, the vatting room is built into the hillside, and all the winemaking machines use gravity. No pumps are used at all. By reducing handling and interference to a minimum, the integrity of the grapes is preserved.

The estate in Solutré Pouilly grows its vines at the foot of the fascinating Roche de Solutré, with the Roche de Vergisson in the background. The soils are chalky and mineral. The style here is very “solutréen”: freshness, mineral edge and tautness are the key words.

The philosophy of Domaine des Trois Tilleuls is based on respect for traditions and leaving the vines up to their own devices. Within this logic, the vines are traditionally grown with partial grassing for ground labour.


Sylvie and Denis Bouchacourt produce wines with a mineral aromatic profile, infused with elegance and precision.


Sylvie and her husband Denis represent the 3rd generation of winemakers on this family estate. The roles are clearly defined; Sylvie manages the estate whilst Denis dedicates his time to producing the wine.

Vieille Vigne, mineral and elegantly woody. The immediate impression is soft, with aromas of hazelnut and toast. It is a full and round wine, with a mellow woodiness, good length and a mineral finish revealed by a hint of vanilla.
