- Terroir : "The Côte Chalonnaise, in Saône et Loire, continues the Côte d'Or southward from the Côte de Beaune to the north of the Mâconnais hills. Awarded its AOC in 1939, Rully is a village with a very long history, located in the northern part of the Côte Chalonnaise. Rully produces white and red village wines and Premiers Crus. It is also the birthplace of Crémant de Bourgogne. Between 230 and 300 metres in altitude, the slope gives wines that rival the best Côte de Beaune wines, right next door."
- Vinification & Elevage : "These grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our red wines, the grapes arriving at the vat room pass over a sorting table and are sorted before being loaded into the vinification vat. We immediately carry out a ""cold pre-fermentation"" maceration which, by cooling the vat to 10°C, optimises the extraction of the grapes' natural flavours and oxygenates the must. We favour long vatting with daily cap-punching for 8-10 days to facilitate the extraction of the tannins and colours. Lastly, the final maceration lasts 3-5 days, while the must macerates gently at a controlled temperature to develop greater finesse and aromas. This is followed by ageing for 14 months in oak barrels, 35% of which are lightly-heated new barrels."
- Commentaries by our oenologist : Very fruity, this is an extremely elegant wine with great finesse. It offers a bouquet of black and red fruits, toasted accents and soft spices. The red fruit notes are typical of the Pinot Noir. Its tannins are fine and silky.
- Food pairing : An elegant accompaniment for game birds, this wine is the ideal choice for dishes such as partridge with grapes.
