Appellation: Rully

Rully is a commune within the Côte Chalonnaise that is best know for its white wines, though some very good reds can be found too. There are 23 Premier Cru vineyards here. The Côte Chalonnaise lies to the south of the Côte d'Or and benefits from similar limestone clay soils. There are no Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte Chalonnaise. Rully whites are light - medium bodied, marked by fresh acidities, the reds are similarly light and refreshing, both can make for excellent value early-drinking Burgundy.

Grape Type: Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most widely-grown and versatile of all white grape varieties. As a relatively neutral grape, it offers a near transparent map of winemaking style, climate and terroir. It is the ideal grape variety for Burgundy, where it serves to mirror the complex nuances of the myriad of terroirs found in this hallowed land. Chardonnay produces a variety of wines from the minerally and unoaked styles found in Chablis, the fatter nuttier examples in Meursault, to the tropical fruit-driven versions found in the New World. It is also the major grape variety in Champagne, where it produces lively floral wines, namely in the Côte de Blancs. It can be found throughout Europe and the New World thanks to its versatility. As a non-aromatic variety, it has an affinity with oak, whether new or used, French or American.
