Chardonnay - Rully Blanc - Michel Briday
Cote Chalonnaise/ Rully - Burgundy - France
This wine comes from a blend of 4 different parcels. It gives an excellent snapshot of the Rully vineyard as the vines are all located in different sectors. The Chaponnières and Saint Jacques Climats bring finesse and elegance to a tonality of white fruits. La Crée, a terroir located below the premier crus, is more stony. It gives more powerful wines, with a lot of substance. Finally, La Bergerie is a deep clay soil. It adds a hint of exotic fruits (for example, grapefruit).
GRAPE VARIETY / METHOD:
After manual harvesting, the grapes are pressed immediately with care. Fermentation starts naturally (without the addition of yeast) in vats and barrels. Maturation also continues in vats to preserve the fruit and approachability of Chardonnay. Only 25% of the cuvée, from Climat La Crée, is aged in barrels.
The nose evokes pear, lemon, spices and subtle dried fruits.
Pretty exotic, clean style in its white peach, pineapple, green citrus and floral aromas and flavors. Rounded, supple, and beautifully textured, with terrific balance
Founded over 40 years ago owners Sandrine and Stéphane Briday believe living with the terroirs means respecting nature above all else. Each intervention is carefully considered in order to encourage balance of the planting as much as possible in its environment.
The wines of the estate combine purity and delicacy for whites, well-structured and gourmand for reds. The 11 vintages of the estate, in regional, village or premier cru appellations, each have their secrets and beguile our senses into the magic of the great terroirs of Burgundy.
