Discover the Rully appellation
Next to the Burgundy village of Chagny, between Bouzeron to the north and Mercurey to the south, the AOC Rully comes in two versions: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Overlooking the plains of Saône, the slopes are between 230 and 300 meters high, where the soils are mainly clay and limestone. In general the region and its 340 hectares of vineyard (217 ha of white grapes and 123 ha of red grapes) can produce up to 15,000 hectoliters of wine.
The Pinot Noir from the Côte Chalonnaise gives birth to full-bodied wines, expressive and meaty. The Chardonnay offers a nice range of aromas, often very lemony, and a nice acidity. 23 first growths are in existence there, among which the Clos Saint-Jacques, Grésigny, Chapitre and Les Cloux. They all benefit from the altitude, between 240 and 300 m, and are fully exposed to sunlight (oriented east / south-east). The higher climates of the hill mostly produces white wines and the lower climates red ones.
