Great value 1er Cru White Burgundy
02 August 2019

Good characterful Burgundy that does not break the bank is getting hard to come by. We firmly believe the Cote Chalonnaise is one of the few habitats left in the world where such a rare beast can be found. One of the area’s prominent appellations is Rully. Here there are producers making increasingly exciting burgundies, many of the whites close to rivalling Cote d’Or quality. Today we are offering a top 1er Cru white from a domaine we believe to be one of the region’s new stars: Domaine de la Folie.

Clémence and Baptiste Dubrulle took over the Domaine in 2010, but the estate’s history goes back three hundred years. It was Clémence’s grandfather that really made the reputation of the Domaine as one of the greats in the Côte Chalonnaise in the sixties and seventies. The Domaine fell on hard times and had nearly gone to ruin until Clémence and Baptiste took over and set about restoring it to its former glory. What a turnaround. The Domaine, based in Chagny, stretches over 13 hectares of Rully, two-thirds of which is planted to Chardonnay and one-third Pinot Noir. Viticulture is sustainable, respecting both tradition and the environment, chemical herbicides are avoided and harvest is manual in small cases. The wines, which are from some of the region’s finest single vineyards, are aged in steel or with oak barrels up to a maximum of five years-old depending on the cuvée. It’s wonderful to see this Domaine fulfilling their potential and showing that of the Rully region in general for producing, classy, pure wines of huge character.
