ORIGIN

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.

Rully benefits from 23 climates ranked in first cru, the climates favorable to the red wines are those located on the lowest hillsides. Among the most renowned climates are the Clos Saint Jacques, Chapel, Champs Cloux, La Pucelle, Grésigny...

VARIETAL

Chardonnay is the grape variety for Rully white wines.
- 10 000 plants/hectare.

CHARACTERISTICS AND ASSETS

Subtle differences in the wines are due to differences in soil, exposure and altitude, all of which vary considerably hereabouts. At heights of 230-300 meters, the hill-slopes produce wines which can compete with the best wines of the nearby Côte de Beaune.

The Pinot Noir grape grows on brown or limey soils with little clay in their make-up. The Chardonnay grape prefers a clay- limestone soil.
