2018 Domaine A et P de Villaine Rully 1er Cru "Les Margotés", Burgundy, France

The delicacy of white flowers blends happily with the delicacy of the aromas of pear and white peach. The mouth is sensual and expressive, but the fine mineral, saline structure, developing flinty aromas, gives this wine a lot of class and length.


It is only since 2011 that Pierre de Benoîst and Aubert de Villaine have been running a small plot of very old vines of the famous 1 st cru Grésigny. Ideally located mid-hill, in the heart of the best Rully finage vintages, the vines here show more than 80 years on the clock. Always in full health, thanks to constant care and a rigorous application of bio-dynamic principles, the vines find in the marly-limestone soils all the elements that will give the wine this subtle balance between a sensual texture and a great mineral finesse.
After a manual harvest, meticulous sorting and delicate pressing, in a whole bunch, the wine is then vinified as naturally as possible and aged in casks and barrels, longer than the other vintages of the Estate.
