Rully, located in the Côte Chalonnaise, produces wines which are expressive and pleasant to drink when young. The grapes come from a parcel located to the southwest of the village, above the famous Les Pucelles 1er Cru. Bordered by forest, this terroir retains plenty of freshness and is one of the last to be harvested in the area. The grapes are harvested by hand and fermentation takes place entirely in stainless steel vats, after which the wines are transferred by gravity into French oak barrels (20% new). The lees are not stirred (bâtonnage) during ageing, which lasts 11 months so the wine isn’t overtly rich. Bright golden in hue with green tints and a very expressive fruit and floral nose. Straightforward on entry to the palate and showing tropical fruit on the finish.. The palate is wonderfully approachable and has a nice chunk of tropical fruit on the finish.
