Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
District Côte Chalonnaise
Village Rully
Classification 1er Cru
ABV 13%
Vineyard La Pucelle

(Tasted from tank, this will be botted next week. Spends at least one month ‘en masse’ after racking out of barrels.) Delicious. Pure, pretty and long. Great tightly wrapped core - with lime, greengage and juice of warm lemons. Flowers too - and a line of gentle sweetness. Its all here. Well tucked in for now - but a very charming Pucelles - this will be wonderfully showy in the not too distant future. L&S (Oct 2023)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles of wine (or 9 litre equivalent) or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified (4.5 litres) to get the discounted 'case price' for each bottle.

Quite a lot of colour here but the oak is restrained on the nose. A savoury character on the palate rather than upfront stone fruit. Zestiness adds to freshness on the finish. Plenty of complexity here – a fine Rully premier cru. (AWH) 13% Drinking range: 2025 - 2030 Rating: 16.5+ Andy Howard MW, (Feb 2024)

P & M Jacqueson

The domaine was founded in 1946 by Henri Jacqueson and passed to his son Paul. Marie joined her father in 2006 and since 2015 she and her brother Pierre run the estate, now known simply as P&M Jacqueson. The domaine consists of 18 hectares of vines, mostly in Rully, but also 5 in Mercurey and some in Bouzeron. The team also tend vines owned by their neighbours and make some beautiful wines from other peoples' fruit that they themselves have worked all year.

Traditional methods meticulously applied inspire everything they do: the grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in classical fashion, before an élevage in barrel (up to 25% new wood for the reds, just 20% for the 1er Cru Whites). The domaine has become adept at a sophisticated use of barrels, the élevage here is key to the quality they consistently achieve.
