Vineyard La Pucelle

Still my personal favourite of the Jacqueson whites, the Pucelle has always had something reminiscent of the style of Puligny about it, slidey, mineral, light-footed, appetising and pure. As always it could do with a little more time, but if you want to try it fully mature you will have to cellar it yourself as we cannot hold onto it long enough. L&S (Jan 2014)

The 2012 Rully 1er Cru La Pucelle has a fragrant bouquet with apple blossom and light orange zest scents that gently waft from the glass. The palate is light and grassy on the entry. The acidity is nicely poised and there is a lilting finish that cuts away just a tad too quickly. Otherwise, this is fine, relatively easy-drinking white Burgundy. Rating: 89 Neal Martin, (Mar 2014)

Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson

Domaine Jacqueson consists now of 18 hectares of vines, mostly in Rully, but also 5 in Mercurey and some in Bouzeron. The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in classical fashion, before an élevage in barrel (up to 25% new wood). Under Paul, and now by his children, Marie and Pierre, the domaine has become adept at a sophisticated use of barrels, the élevage here is key to the quality they consistently achieve, and this rubs off on the négociant 'Cuvée Sélection' which is always beautifully finished.

As usual the élevage in barrel here is extremely precise and delicately done with around 20% new wood, the Premiers Crus getting barrels with a little more toast.
