Etymology

This is the name of two plots at Aloxe-Corton, above the D974 road from Dijon to Beaune. A large plot named “Aux Boutières” runs on from these plots at Savigny-lès-Beaune, and above, the Champ Chevrey climat points to a hollow path probably followed by mules transporting wine-filled “boutes” (goatskins). We can follow their steps thanks to the three parcels at Pernand-Vergelesses which prolong the Savigny-lès-Beaune lieu-dit “Aux Boutières” and are called Les Boutières. The layout of these parcels is surprising. They are spaced out along this very ancient road which probably enabled the mule-riders to get to the Arrière-Côte villages to supply them with wine. We would like to know where these mule-drivers came from; possibly from the port of Seurre which is closer to these villages than Chalon-sur-Saône. Oil and wine were transported by mule in “boutes”: goatskins containing about 50 litres. Would this name, which stems from imperial Latin BUTTIS “wine vessel” originate from Gallic? We don’t know. It could rather be a Mediterranean term linked with vine growing.
