Located in the northern Côte Chalonnaise in the village of the same name, Rully’s 340 ha of vines form part of the Mercurey region.
SoilLocated at altitudes of between 230 and 300 metres, the vines grown in calcareous clay soil overlying Jurassic marl. This slope yields wines that rival the best the Côte de Beaune has to offer.
Grape variety100 % Pinot Noir.
VinificationVinification takes place in stainless steel tanks with temperatures maintained at 20°C in order to preserve the freshness and fruitiness of the varietal. 20% of the cuvée was aged in 3-year-old oak barrels.
RobeBeautiful deep ruby red in colour.
NoseThe nose is mostly evocative of vegetal aromas such as blackcurrant buds and forest undergrowth, some red berry notes.
PalateStarts off soft and smooth. Boasting light tannins, this wine is well balanced and features flavours of red berries.
Serve withPairs very well with grilled meats and roasted poultry or sauced dishes as well as with offal such as pan-fried calf’s liver with shallots or veal kidneys in Madeira sauce. As for cheeses, try this wine with Saint-Nectaire or Tomme de Savoie.
