The opinion of the sommelierThis cuvee from Domaine de l’Ecette shows how much Rully is a terroir that gives refined and elegant wines. Pinot noir, known to be among the most elegant varieties is here at its best. It displays its intense fruity flavours (mainly cherry) with mushrooms and spicy aromas that bring complexity. The main aftertaste is remarkably long and enjoyable.
TerroirRully is located in southern Burgundy, which is a great region to find amazing wines for more affordable prices than the Grand Crus, mainly located in Northern Burgundy. Its specificity is that it enjoys more sun and therefore displays riper aromas. If you have to make a trip to Burgundy, know that the winemakers are more likely to welcome tourists in this area which also is very beautiful !
Grape varietyPinot Noir prefers to grow away from the sea as it does not like humidity. Indeed, it is very fragile and falls ill easily. A terroir of limestone, and very filtering stone, are a great addition to protect vine stocks from too much water. It is this magic combination that allowed Burgundy to become and by far the best place in the world to grow Pinot Noir.
Vintage2016 was disturbed in Burgundy by frost which hit several times. It is quite frequent in Burgundy : as it is a continental region, it suffers from huge gap of temperatures between seasons. However, it was harder in 2016 and therefore you will not have many opportunities to taste 2016 Burgundy wines, so enjoy !
