The name Antonin Rodet has been rhyming with Mercurey in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise since 1875, when the house was founded by Antoine Rodet, known as Antonin. The Clos Rodet, a 17th Century bourgeois mansion situated in the heart of the village, is embodying the House’s historical heart, cellar and values. For decades, the visionary Rodet family did not hesitate to invest in one of the oldest terroirs in Burgundy and contributed to the business development of the House, brought the Rodet signature into international markets and enhanced its reputation to become a reference in Mercurey and far beyond the native region. Antonin Rodet Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines contributed to the international renown of the House whose consecration came with an award at the Universal Exhibition in 1900. Of noble character and fully expressive after traditional winemaking, the House wines reflect their origins with great purity.

Antonin Rodet runs the vineyard of this ancient fortified Château dating back to the 12th Century, symbol of the village of Rully, and property of the same family since its origins.

Rully is a communal appellation made up of 23 Premiers Crus climats. White Rullys spread on a 261 ha area - including 68 ha of Premiers Crus - whereas red Rullys are produced on a 116 ha area of which 28 are Premiers Crus.

Rully was named after a rich roman, Rubilius, who built a villa and founded the village during the roman occupation. It was at first named Rubiliacum and it evolved through the years to become the current Rully.

Grape variety

100% Pinot Noir.

Vinification and maturing

Grapes are harvested by hand, carefully sorted and put into 25 kg capacity boxes, to avoid any kind of crushing. Once at the winery, the grapes are sorted a second time with the purpose of keeping only the most sound grapes. By removing the grey rot, we ensure a vinification and no unwanted aromas in the wine.
A 3-weeks vinification process takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, with regular pumps-over; stirrings are done according the results of regular tastings, in order to balance the intense extraction of aromas and colour we get through pumping-over.
Finally, the wine is aged in oak barrels for a year (25% new oak) to develop its aromas and soften its tannins.
