2017 Rully “La Crée”
The village of Rully is located in the Côte Chalonnaise (Saône et Loire), just south of the Côte de Beaune. There are 23 classified Premier Cru vineyards and an additional 30 Lieux-dits (named vineyards), including La Crée. It is a gentle slope in the middle of the Appellation facing South East on a brown clay soil, which is distinguished by its marked stonyness. Because it is stonier, wines from La Cree tend to be more mineral driven then some of the neighboring vineyards.

Aged 16 months in French oak.
WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES |
Golden with green highlights, becoming a deeper buttercup yellow with age, it distinguishes itself with aromas of “hedgerow flowers” such as acacia, hawthorn, honeysuckle, very fine elderberry, or violet, lemon, white peach or flint. With time, it develops notes of honey, quince, dried fruits. To the palate, it is fruity, a lively, rounded, rich and lingering fruitiness: all the freshness and smoothness of marble.
