Rully is one of the 5 'village' appellations of the Côte Chalonnaise. These vineyards, situated in the immediate extension of the Côte de Beaune, are equally well known for their white wines as for their reds. Chardonnay is always the preferred grape variety here. Lovers of fine wines consider Rully as the flagship of Côte Chalonnaise white wines.
Its popularity nowadays is symbolic of the recent history of this part of Burgundy. Situated to the north of the Saone and Loire, forty years ago there were barely 100 hectares of vines, whereas there are now an extensive 360 hectares.
Nowadays, therefore, the white wines of Rully are no longer a secret. The wines present a great aromatic subtlety with hints of stone fruits and hazelnuts. Depending on the soil, the wines can range from supple and robust, to more fine and delicate.
