    Cuvée presentation

    This Rully Les Saint-Jacques comes from a plot just below the famous Clos Saint-Jacques, a renowned premier cru. It is both powerful and delicate, with subtle white fruit aromas. The mouth offers a beautiful minerality, fine texture and attractive length.

    Information about domain Domaine 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.
