2016 Rully Les Cailloux
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). Les Cailloux (“the stones”) is one of the highest elevation vineyards, descending from a plateau above. As the name suggested, there are a lot of surface stones in the vineyards, which absorb and radiate the sun’s heat.
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.
