The vineyard of Rully spreads on 290 hectares on the Côte Chalonnaise, just south of the Côte de Beaune. The soils are marl or clay, with limestone patches. This wine is produced on the Domaine Louis Max, on the beautiful terroir les Plantenays. These excellent old Chardonnay vines come from a single tenant and are situated at more than 300 metres altitude on 3 hectares. The vineyard is on its first year of conversion to organic farming.
Manual harvest with grape sorting before the winemaking. Fermentation in oak barrels and maturation for 12 months.
Beautiful brilliant gold robe, with green reflections. In the nose, floral aromas of acacias, honeysuckle and fresh fruits like lemon or white peach. Very fruity in the mouth, well-balanced, very fresh and lengthy.
Perfect to pairs with a seafood platter, poached and grilled fishes, delicate poultry meals and soft flavoured cheeses.
