This appellation of the "Côte Chalonnaise" sometimes resembles the wines of the Côte de Beaune, both on red wines and on white wines. The Rully vineyard is located not far from the magnificent vineyards of Puligny Montrachet and Meursault to the north, Mercurey and Givry to the south.
The vineyard of Rully is very old, it was developed by the Dukes of Burgundy. Its vineyard extends over hills of more than 200 meters of altitude overlooking the Saône plain.
The grapes are harvested by hand and after pressing the grapes, a cold settling of 12 hours at 8°C. (46°F.) is made.
Then the juice was put in tank and in barrels (15% new one) for both fermentation alcoholic and malolactic and aged 10 months on its fine lees.
Coulour: Nice gold yellow color with emerald reflections.
Nose: The bouquet reveals very nice aromas of citrus and white flowers, with mineral notes and a very fine wood.
Palate: Round attack, this wine is well balanced and offers a palette of flavors (citrus, mineral, toasted breads, butter). A nice length and a lot of freshness.
Serve on its own, as an aperitif with light starters. Will also be a great companion to all seafood, terrines and fine fish.
It can be consumed now or laid down in a cellar for the next 3 years.
