Region: Rully, Burgundy, France
Located directly south of the Côte-de-Beaune, Rully offers an amazing value for lovers of Burgundy. Les Crée (a named vineyard) is composed of primarily clay with marked content of stone. Because of this, wines from Les Crée tend to be much more mineral-driven than neighboring vineyard sites. This wine distinguishes itself with aromas of “hedgerow flowers” such as acacia, hawthorn, honeysuckle, very fine elderberry, or violet, lemon, white peach or flint. With time, it develops notes of honey, quince, dried fruits. On the palate, it is fruity, a lively, rounded, rich and lingering fruitiness: all the freshness and smoothness of marble.
