Rully Blanc 2011 - Charles-Henri Bourguignon

This wine is out of stock

£ 14.75 tax incl.

Again, another really amazing white with a big personality. A mineral and stony Chardonnay which shows aromas of peach and citrus, and a nice finish with a hint of toffee. Rully is one of the rising appellations of the Côte Chalonnaise and this one is definitely a great ambassador!

A word about the domain
Maison Henri de Villamont was founded in 1889 in Savigny-lès-Beaune and has been part of the Swiss group Schenk since 1964. Heavy investments have been made in the last decade by the group to develop the potential of this domain and its négociant range. One was to hire Pierre Jehan, a highly recognised Burgundy winemaker, in order to get that incredible consistent quality in their wines. Villamont produces reds and whites both from their own domain and from meticulously sourced grapes they buy form partner vineyards. Today, their wines are exported all around the world and can be found in the best Michelin-starred restaurant, which obviously speaks for itself.
