2017 Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
The Jacqueson's Village Rully comes from 2 parcels: Le Fromange and La Barre. It spends just less than a year in wood of which just 20% are new and lightly toasted. The results are good! This is pretty and appetising floral nose leads to a soft feel in the mouth bright white fruit and some blossom - and a nicely lemony middle, peppy but not tart. Just good easy flow and attractive soft feel. This is 'a point' and ready to drink. Drinking range: 2019 - 2022 L&S (Nov 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
Marie, named 'Young Winemaker of the Year' at the Hospices de Beaune as long ago as 2010, represents the third generation of Jacquesons to be making wine here. She was joined at the domaine by her brother Pierre in 2015. Her grandfather Henri started off in 1946 with a small parcel of Aligoté. Henri was quite a pioneer at a time when Rully was not well-known, the vineyards having been substantially abandoned after the first world war. Paul, Henri's son and father of the current generation, was responsible for the drive to quality which gained the domaine its reputation. He still active in support of his children.
The domaine consists now of 13 hectares of vines, mostly in Rully, but also parcels in Mercurey and 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, 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 ,em>negociant 'Cuvée Sélection' which is always beautifully finished.
We have always loved the whites, and especially the Pucelle, which is a model of what a great Rully can be year after year, but the reds are increasingly not to be missed - red Burgundies at sensible prices which have crunchy fresh Pinot fruit, and an excellent velvet feel.
