Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
The adventurous and sportif Paul Jacqueson has been at the head of this domaine for many years - but now his daughter Marie is heavily involved as the next generation moves in, this is no bad thing at all as she was named 'Young Winemaker of the Year' at the Hospices de Beaune in 2010 and she now represents the third generation of Jacquesons to be making wine here since her grandfather Henri started off in the 1950's with a small parcel of Aligoté.
They are making wines of impeccable quality, close indeed to their much more expensive cousins on the Côte d'Or. We have a particular fondness for the whites, and especially the Pucelle, which is a model of what a great Rully can be year after year. However, the reds too are on a charge and improve almost every year.
Just when you think Burgundy is getting a tad expensive, some other upward pressures are applied to prices - small harvests and Chinese wine buyers are the current in vogue factors. Luckily for you, there are merchants out there (or here, to be precise) with the nouse to seek out good value even in a region where good value can feel hard to come by. Here's a fine old selection, red and white, all with prices south of £20 a bottle - not necessarily a price to tempt the less discerning away from the discount supermarket but it does mean that us ordinary mortals can still afford to drink Burgundy.
