Chateau de Rully “La Pucelle” 2009
They have moved onto the 2010 now but this is a solid Rully 1er Cru which in located in the Cotes Chalonnaise in central Burgundy.
On the eye it’s pale straw in colour. The nose is immense and complex that includes brown butter, marigold, wet wool, sweet white melon, toasted brioche, preserved lemon & calvados.
Flavours of golden syrup & apple, smoky bacon, with a squeeze of lime zest. Long finish where you feel the acidity but then comes melted butter with a hint of dish soap.
Available from M&S in cases of 6 for around £96 plus delivery
