Domaine de Villaine Rully Blanc "1er Cru Les Margotes" 2018

Unit price per

About the wine:

100% Chardonnay from 45+ year old vines, fermented and aged in foudre.
Malolactic fermentation in foudre, then aged for 12-18 months in foudre and 12 months in bottle.

Notes of white flowers, crisp green orchard, fresh bread and bee pollen preface the 2018 Rully 1er Cru Les Margotés, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and lively wine that's elegant and incisive, concluding with a saline finish.

About the producer:

The de Villaines farm three appellations within the Côte Chalonaise, namely Bouzeron (Aligoté), Rully (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) and Mercurey (Pinot Noir). Their single-vineyard parcels are stunning examples of what this complex and amazing terroir can yield. Though their wines are quite enjoyable young, their ability to age well is what one might expect from a master such as de Villaine. Much of this is due to both the diversity of his vinestock and his organic and biodynamic methodology in the vineyards, both of which Aubert stands by with great conviction. He also ferments his Mercureys and Rully rouge in wood tanks, a style adopted from DRC.
