2017 Rully Blanc, Domaine Chanson, Burgundy, France
On the hill in the heart of Côte Chalonnaise, the "terroirs" of Rully are perfectly suited for Chardonnay, and when in the hands of master-producers, such as Domaine Chanson, the wines of Rully are some of Burgundy's greatest bargains.
After a gentle pressing, this wine was vinified and aged for 13 months in oak casks. The result is a wine with delicate floral fragrances (acacia) mixed with citrus fruit aromas and pale fleshed fruit. On the palate it is precise and deep texture with fruit dominating the gentle spice.
