Cultivated organically, the Chardonnay grapes used for this cuvée enjoy an ideal location on a south-east-facing slope. To make it, the domain vinified and aged the wine in used oak casks and demi-muids for a year and a half.
This cuvée is marked by subtly exotic notes and hints of its maturation (vanilla, gentle spices). Dense, ample,a nd unctuous, the palate is lifted by a nice minerality. We recommend waiting for at least five years before uncorking this cuvée in order to fully enjoy it. The richness of this wine will pair nicely with fleshy fish or scallops with beurre blanc.

Rully 1er Cru Montpalais A. et P. de Villaine serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Quenelles de brochet, Noix de Saint-Jacques au beurre blanc, Pavé de saumon au lait de coco et courgettes rôties.

    Information about domain Domaine A. et P. de Villaine

    In 1971, Aubert de Villaine, the man at the head of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, bought this Bouzeron property with his wife Pamela. It is in a far smaller setting than in the Côte de Nuits, where the Villaine couple make superb wines, both red and white. He was the great ambassador of the Classification of Burgundy Climats at the World Heritage of Humanity and applies the same methods to the DRC: biodynamic cultivation, natural winemaking, hand-picked and sorted grapes. His nephew Pierre de Benoist gradually took over the Villaine domaine (formerly called A & P de Villaine). The wines at Mercurey, Rully or Bouzero have become amongst the finest on the Côte Chalonnaise.
