RULLY "LES VILLERANGES" 2016Domaine Faiveley
This Burgundian domaine has been a family estate for nearly 200 years. Erwan Faiveley, 7th generation, took the reins in 2006 from his father when he was only 25. They have earned their reputation as one of Burgundy’s finest and most trusted, with an unparalleled selection from the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise totalling over 120 hectares.
The village of Rully has been inhabited since antiquity and its wine has been appreciated for a very long time. In 1629, when visiting Chalon-sur-Saône, King Louis XIII was given a present of 22 ‘feuillettes’ or half barrels of Rully wine. Today, the white wine of Rully is still one of the key reference points in Côte Chalonnaise.
This often underrated chardonnay from the Côte Chalonnaise
Is a blend of mineral flinty aromas and very ripe fruit aromas giving a nice fresh bouquet. This wine is very pleasant on the palate, sophisticated and rounded at first, with a slightly acidic finish, which gives a beautiful freshness to the whole feel of the wine.
Great with fish and shellfish.
Like all good white Burgundies, don’t over-chill – rather, serve about 10°C. Cellaring Potential: 3 to 5 years
