Rully is a communal appellation of the Côte Chalonnaise in the South of Burgundy.
The appellation area includes 23 Premiers Crus climats.
White Rullys spread on a 246 ha area - including 68 ha of Premiers Crus - whereas red Rullys are produced on a 121 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.
- Vineyard area: 1,21 Ha (2,96 acres).
- Vines age: around 25 years.
- Soil: brown, very pebbly and predominantly chalky.
The Pinot Noir grapes of our Rully village plots are handpicked, carefully sorted and then carried in 16 kg boxes to protect them from crush and compaction. After being sorted again on the table at their arrival at the winery, the grapes are placed in vats for maceration for around 12 days.
Then a cold pre-fermentation stage is made during 24 hours and the vinification starts for around 13 days.
The vinification continues in thermo-regulated concrete vats with daily pumping over and very few pigeages (cap punching placed at the beginning of fermentation).
The wine is then aged during 8 months in oak barrels with 20% new oak.
Light filtration before bottling.
