2016 Rully 1er Cru “Rabourcé”
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). The plot is located on a very steep clay and limestone slope facing South-East – just above the highly regarded Cloux vineyards and just below the woods. It is typically one of the first Rully vineyards to ripen and can produce a wine of great depth and power.
Aged 16 months in French oak and vat.
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.
