Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer. These include some particularly well-sited vineyards: Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés borders Meursault Vireuils, for example, while Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes lies just below Bonnes-Mares. In each case, because the former is so much less famous, the value for money is exceptional.

Pinpoint ripeness here, with apricot and apple aromas, followed by Rully’s typically firm, medium-bodied palate. Fresh and satisfying, and a fine ambassador for this well-known village. The vines that made this Rully are twenty years old, planted on clay- limestone soil and aged for nine months in 350-litre oak barrels, with twenty percent new wood.

Tasting Note:
Light and bright colour. Aromas of flint and gunflint characterize the nose of the Rully. Vivid wine at the attack, it develops a nice fleshy after-taste.

P&P £4.95
