Notes

With her family deeply rooted in Burgundy, Anne-Sophie Debavelaere founded a wine estate in Rully, Côte Chalonnaise, in 1984 between Mercurey, Santenay and Puligny Montrachet.

As the years went by, the estate expanded itself with vineyards in Rully, Bouzeron and Beaune. It now reaches 25 acres today on south east facing sloped vineyards, planted with the traditional burgundy grape varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Aligoté).

The vines are trained using the least amount of chemicals as possible so as to limit the damaging effects of pest treatments on the environment.

Today, Anne-Sophie’s son Felix runs the Domaine, ever finding more exciting Rully parcels, investing in winemaking and improving the quality. The 2016s are the finest vintages we have tasted and offer chiselled, pure and delicious Burgundy at a reasonable price. Watch out for the young winemakers of Rully, the quality is exploding.

Rully is a stone’s throw from Chassagne-Montrachet, this is a real up-and-coming appellation. ‘Les Cailloux’ is a rock-strewn single vineyard strewn and Domaine Rois Mages, in the town of Rully, produces a serious and chiselled beauty.

Tasting notes:
'A little more expressive than the Thruyer, chalky textured and compact but fresh. Very nice citrus fruit, softened by a lees richness. Straightforward, honest pleasure.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16/20
