Tasting Notes:

The nose shows flinty minerality which makes it shy on opening.
The aromas are fresh, rich, and ripe. They are reminiscent of acacia blossom, citrus fruits accompanied by a hint of oak which brings a touch almost stony, smoky from the limestone.
The palate is very elegant. You can see the fruit quality of these 80-year-old vines. Everything is in the fruit concentration giving the impression of power, depth throughout in the mouth. The finish remains as the other Rully 1er Crus, surprisingly long, fresh, and very saline with notes of bitter lemon.

Description

DOMAINE DE VILLAINE Rully 1er Cru Gresigny Blanc 2019

DOMAINE DE VILLAINE Rully 1er Cru Gresigny Blanc 2019. In 1971, Aubert de Villaine, the man at the head of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, bought this Bouzeron property with his wife Pamela. It is in a far smaller setting than in the Côte de Nuits, where the Villaine couple make superb wines, both red and white. He was the great ambassador of the Classification of Burgundy Climats at the World Heritage of Humanity and applies the same methods to the DRC: biodynamic cultivation, natural winemaking, hand-picked and sorted grapes. His nephew Pierre de Benoist gradually took over the Villaine domaine (formerly called A & P de Villaine). The wines at Mercurey, Rully or Bouzero have become amongst the finest on the Côte Chalonnaise.
