Red wines from Burgundy’s Rully struggle to
ripen in cool years. But 2009’s warm weather
made grapes for this bottling perfectly ripe.
What You Need To Know
Burgundy’s Côte Chalonnaise, where
the village of Rully (roo-yee) is located, produces plenty of red
wine (all from Pinot Noir) but is better known for its whites (made
from Chardonnay). Vintner Vincent Dureuil-Janthial makes some
of the best examples of both colors of wine from the district,
using organic farming methods and the kind of labor-intensive
vineyard work that’s found more often in the pricey Côte d’Or
district. That effort helps explain why his wines often outclass those of his
neighbors in Rully and beyond.
Fragrant notes of cherries
Smooth and supple, with
tangy sour-cherry flavors.
the bottle should be cool
to the touch.
Earthy chicken dishes,
rich fish, pork.
