So impressed by this. One of the few benefits from rising prices in Burgundy is that people are beginning to take good terroirs that aren’t famous more seriously. Rully, in the Côte Chalonnaise, is one of those. This is a new producer to me, but clearly I am late to the game, because this wine is really good. It’s a very serious white Burgundy. I bought this bottle from Handford Wine in South Kensington for around £30, and I sort of wish I had bought more, although I have far too much wine. There’s a nice profile of Vincent Dureuil on Lea & Sandeman’s website.
Domaine Dureuil-Janthial Rully 2018 Bourgogne, France
13.5% alcohol. Wonderfully vivid nose with bright apples, lemons and matchstick minerality. Smoky, vivid and intense. The palate is laser-sharp and concentrated with lemons, some pear, keen acidity and a tingling minerality. A really vivid, expressive, complex white Burgundy with real precision. 94/100
