Description

Joseph Drouhin Rully Rouge is a beautiful bright ruby-red colour. Aromas of puréed raspberry, gooseberry, red currant, blackberry. With ageing, the aromas evolve towards riper notes of syrup, then tobacco and wet undergrowth. Pretty and refined on the nose. The flavours belong to those of a great Burgundy. Fresh, velvety texture (“gras”), elegant tannins, well meshed when the wine is mature. Long, refined aftertaste, with some touches of fruit jam.

At the gates of the Côte d’Or, a few kilometers south of Santenay, this appellation is part of the region of Mercurey. The village of Rully is ancient: the land may have been first cleared by a Roman whose name was Rubilius. The soil is comprised of secondary age limestone layers, in the continuation of Mercurey.
