RULLY red is made entirely from Pinot Noir grapes.
North of the Côte Chalonnaise, the Rully vineyards extend over hillsides tormented by the uneven grounds, and offers varied soils, exposures and altitudes. The overall vineyard is located on the Rully plateau at an altitude of approximately 300 metres. Eastern exposure.
The soil is mainly composed of calcareous clay. The soil on this plateau is shallow, and the earth is red and composed if a multitude of small pebbles which contrasts with its colour.
Long aging period in oak barrels.
Slightly austere when young, this wine opens onto a bouquet of black (blackcurrant, blackberry) and red fruit (cherries), tending towards spicier themes (pepper). The fine tannins blend with the redcurrant and raspberry aromas on the palate.
Poultry, roasted or stewed, offal (liver, kidney), wild fowl are all excellent pairings, as is meat pasta, risotto and soft-crust cheese.
Best consumed eight years after harvest.
