Description

Domaine Belleville came into being at the beginning of the 20th century in the land surrounding Rully.
It owns 22 hectares of vineyards, including 4 hectares which are leased out, and 2 hectares of land extending from Gevrey Chambertin in the north to Mercurey in the south. The vineyards in Rully represent the vast majority of the Domaine’s vineyards and are planted with 8.25 ha of Chardonnay. Domaine de Rully has the greatest range of premiers crus. The village of Rully is particularly well-known for its remarkable limestone terroir, which has sufficient marl and clay for the chardonnay grape to have found its terroir of choice. The white wines that are produced here easily rival those produced at close-by Côte de Beaune. They are ample and smooth with good consistency and noble texture, similar to those of Mersault. “La Pucelle” comes from the Latin adjective “Pulcella”, which can be translated as “Pretty, beautiful, charming”

TASTING NOTES

Nice light yellow gold robe with tints of green. Limpid and brilliant Bouquet: Expressive bouquet of butter and fruits such as citrus fruits and white flesh fruits In the mouth: Nice structure and very well balanced with a surprising mellowness. Flavours of toasted bread and beautiful minerality on the finish.
