Domaine Belleville Rully 'La Fosse' Premier Cru 2017
This vineyard sits in a small hollow which is also the source of the river Thalie. Aged 12 months in 25% new oak. Open and pleasant aromas of fresh, zesty citrus and mineral notes. Bright, good acidity and a balance of generous citrus and hints of nutty oak mellowness. Fresh, long finish.
Domaine Belleville are based in Rully where they have made wine since the beginning of the 20th century. The estate is currently practicing organic and is awaiting certification next year. The estate has vines across other parts of Burgundy but Rully represents the core of the estate where they have 5 premier crus. The wines are smooth, ample yet balanced and typical of the region which boasts wines to match many of those from Côte de Beaune but at much more palatable prices.
