Domaine Michel Briday Rully 2018

Rully, Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, FranceDomaine Michel Briday was founded in 1976 by Michel and Lucette Briday with 15 acres. Today the domaine is managed by Michel’s son and daughter-in-law, Stéphane and Sandrine, and consists of 38 acres spread across the municipalities of Rully, Bouzeron, and Mercurey. From vines averaging 40 years across 4 parcels in Côte Chalonnaise's Rully (Chaponnières, Saint Jacques, La Crée, and La Bergerie) and a mix of stony clay soils, this was native fermented in stainless and barrels, with 25% remaining in wood for maturation. Creamy and complete, with stony, subtly spiced green apple, crisp pear, elastic, wrapped with a downy blanket of pure lees, trailing off with gentle baking spices. Though this has the expansion of the warm 2018, it holds the stony minerality of the site through the saline finish. An impressive Rully, drinking very well now, especially alongside simple spring veg or prawn risotto.Tasted: 06 December 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 47.00 private wine stores Producer: Domaine Michel BridayDistributors: Stile Brands
