RULLY

2018 1er Cru La Pucelle Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson

Grapes Chardonnay
Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
District Côte Chalonnaise
Village Rully
Classification 1er Cru
ABV 13.5%
Vineyard La Pucelle

Bottled the day before we tasted, so showing a little tight, but there's a phenolic density, a firmness full of bright flavoury freshness. The Premiers Crus get 20% new wood, but the wood influence is nearly unnoticeable, despite Marie saying that these barrels are given a little more toast that those used on the lesser wines. Give it six months, and it will drink well over the following three or four years. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024 L&S (Nov 2019)

Currently out of stock in our warehouse.

Light and correct but just a little flat. Solid, earthbound effort. Drinking range: 2023 - 2029 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2020)

Rully is close to the Cote de Beaune and the best wines are similar in style but usually much cheaper. This shows lovely, freshness, persistence and weight, with a leesy, floral, beeswax texture, understated wood and the acidity of a good Puligny-Montrachet.

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.
