- 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, 15% of which are lightly-heated new barrels."
- Commentaries by our oenologist : Presents a structure that is solid yet very fruity. Its bouquet comprises black and red fruits. The mouth is full-bodied, with notes of small red fruits, and the tannins are silky.
- Food pairing : This red Rully is the perfect pairing for meat with character, for example, served with roast beef en croûte with mushrooms, or confit of lamb shank with rosemary.
