RULLY 1er CRU, Rabourcé Blanc
The appellation Rabourcé is located just on top of Cloux on the most sloping part of hillside. Here, the soils are mostly composed of white clay. The strong reflection favors the maturation process and this plot is always the first to be ripe.
As for the Mont Palais and the Cloux, the wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels during 18 months. Then the wine is bottled after a light filtration.
The Rabourcé is characterized by its richness on the mouth and its strength that give a great length.
To serve at 12° for an aperitif.
(Allen Meadows 90) 2018 Rully “Rabourcé”: Discreet but not invisible wood influence frames the attractively floral-infused nose of various white orchard fruit that is liberally laced with citrus whiffs. The intense and tautly muscular flavors possess evident minerality on the clean and dry finish that is citrusy and sneaky long. It’s well-balanced and solidly complex. Worth a look. 90/2023+
