Domaine Faiveley - Rully “Les Villeranges” Blanc 2018
Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.
Terroir: The village of Rully has been inhabited since Ancient times and its wines have long enjoyed a reputation for excellence. In 1629, King Louis XIII received a gift of 22 barrels of wine from Rully when travelling through Chalon-sur-Saône. The white wine from Rully is now one of the Côte Chalonnaise's most iconic wines.
Vinification: The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The musts are extracted using a pneumatic press before being settled. The alcoholic fermentation lasts 4 weeks and takes place for a proportion of the musts (50%) in French oak barrels, 10% of which are new oak. The ageing period lasts 16 months with regular stirring whilst the rest of the blend is aged in vats. This allows the wine to develop delicate woody notes whilst conserving its freshness and distinctive character.
Additional Details editClear, light yellow color and a fresh nose characterized by flinty, mineral notes. The palate is smooth, round and very distinctive with a delicate touch of acidity that lingers on the fresh finish.

"Exhibiting aromas of peach, fresh pastry and mandarin, the 2018 Rully Les Villeranges is medium to full-bodied, glossy and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids and a giving, open-knit profile."
