Chanzy is a 80 hectare Estate, divided between Côte Chalonnaise, Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits with their base in Bouzeron.
Rully vineyards stretch for about four kilometres from Chagny where it has a few climates, to the southern limit of the Rully commune where it adjoins the Mercurey vineyards. This area has a remarkable limestone terroir with enough marl and clay for the Chardonnay grape variety to have found its land of choice.
Slow and gentle pressed, and then fermented in tuns and 450l barrels under temperature control, aged for twelve months and then 1 month of flavour maturation in stainless steel vats.
This is mineral-infused Chardonnay with notes of ripe apple, pineapple, citrus, touch of caramel and hints of pastry. Modestly touched with tannin and with great intensity of flavour. Long finish. Some ageing potential here!
