2019 RULLY, Les Chaponnières, Paul et Marie Jacqueson. Burgundy

Bin:  460

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

The Châlonnais region (south of the Côte de Beaune) has never been renowned, particularly for reds. Warmer vintages and better winemaking have changed all that – the best estates now produce the best value wines in Burgundy.

Grape variety:

100% Pinot Noir, matured for a year in French oak barrels (just a small percentage of new wood each year).

Producer:

From the website of their UK agent, Thorman Hunt:
“Founded by Henri Jacqueson in 1947, succeeded by his son Paul in 1972 and joined by Paul’s daughter Marie in 2006, and more recently by his son Pierre, this domaine has long been recognised as one of the very best in the Côte Chalonnaise and its wines adorn the lists of many of the finest restaurants in France. They have 18 hectares of wonderfully sited vines, many of which are very old, and prune hard to reduce yields to around 35 hl/ha. They only work the vineyards manually, with very minimal vine treatments. They are one of very few producers in the village (together with Dureuil-Janthial) to hand-pick everything. Extremely proficient winemaking and judicious use of new oak (20% for whites and 25% for reds) make for beautifully crafted, ripe, intense, sensual wines which have the class to belie their origins.”

Old Bridge rating:

Bright, ripe and utterly delicious, even at such a young age.
