Rois Mages, Rully Blanc Moulin a vent 750ml 2016France, Burgundy
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.
Moulin a vent means windmill in English.
Clay-limestone soil with a South East exposure. In this plot there is more clay than limestone, the roots tend to branch around the plant: this favors round and fruity wines.Traditional cultural method, reasoned struggle.
'Characteristics of the windmill are yellow gold color. Wine with candied fruit aroma, buttered and vanilla nose. Long in the mouth and harmonious, it leaves notes of beeswax, exotic fruits with a hint of hawthorn. It is wonderful as an aperitif under the arbor, accompanies a river fish, a wild bar or poultry, and respects soft cheeses.' – Winemaker
