The Rotys are among the oldest winemaking families in Gevrey-Chambertin: the family estate has existed since 1710 and they have owned and farmed vines in the village since 1817. Today, the Rotys control about 15 hectares of vines, and current winemaker Pierre-Jean Roty represents the 11th generation of Rotys in Gevrey-Chambertin. But [one] should note that back in the autumn of 1996, Roty [said] that he had actually traced his lineage back 14 generations to Philibert Roty, who made wine under the reign of (“the Good King”) Henry IV, who was assassinated in 1610.

Wine Advocate 89
The 2015 Bourgogne Pressonnier, one of Domaine Joseph Roty’s emblematic wines, is very successful this vintage, opening in the glass with a bouquet featuring aromas of red berries, black cherry, espresso roast and rich soil—with appreciably more complexity than the regular Bourgogne Rouge. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and taut, with a serious chassis of chalky tannin. This is beginning to shut down in bottle and will benefit from a few years in the cellar, but it is an excellent Bourgogne.
