Domaine Jaeger-Defaix Rully 1er Cru 'Les Cloux'Regular price $52.99
Husband and wife Didier and Helene Defaix run one of the top estates in Rully, the top village in the Cote Chalonnaise. The vineyards here are only minutes south of Beaune, and they share a similar aspect and soil type with their more famous neighbors to the north. Furthermore, the Defaix's connection to these vineyards and the grapes that grow in them is strong and based on experience....it was Helene's great-grandfather Henri Niepice who was instrumental in elevating Rully to AOC status in the 1930's.
The Les Cloux vineyard sits near the top of a slope, where all of Rully’s most esteemed vineyards are located. The soil here is rich with clay and rocky limestone, and these old, well-drained Chardonnay vines provide the “stuff” of a great wine. Barrel fermented and aged for 18 months, the resulting wine is structured, layered, and powerful. Lovely notes of pineapple, pear, honeysuckle, and orange marmalade all show up on the medium-bodied, ample palate. Fantastic stuff!
