Rully 1er Cru
The village of Rully, the cradle of Chardonnay in the Côte Chalonnaise, also produces remarkable red wines. Its rather chalky soil allows the Pinot Noir to express its fruit flavours and gives it a nice freshness.
Situation géographique et terroir
The vineyard of Rully is located on the Côte Chalonnaise, more precisely between the appellations Bouzeron and Mercurey. The vines are planted here on gently sloping hillsides at an altitude of around 300 metres. The village is one of the most important cradles of Chardonnay in Burgundy. The appellation produces white Premier Crus capable of rivaling those of the best villages of the Côte.
The grapes are sorted and then de-stemmed, and transported to the vat with the help of belts, always with the aim of having a whole grape, and not crushed. We proceed to a cold pre-fermentation maceration at 10°C for 4 to 5 days. During this phase, the aromas of the grapes and components such as anthocyanins are released. Then comes the fermentation during which we proceed to daily pigeage to extract the matter, the tannins. The vatting lasts 21 days. We then proceed to an ageing in oak barrels for 15 months with 20% of new barrels with light toasting called blonde.
