Domaine Dareuil-Janthial, Maizieres
There are few other artisans in the Côte Chalonnaise that faithfully craft Burgundy with as much purity, elegance or character as does Vincent Dureuil. Not only is Dureuil a gifted winemaker, but also he is blessed with some exemplary older-vine vineyards that have for years been cared for organically—another level of attention that sets Dureuil apart from the rest. His delicate touch translates each individual terroir into a perfect liquid picture of what the best of Rully—and the best of Burgundy, for that matter—can be. For this red, bunches are destemmed and fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks or upright wooden fermenters. Wines are aged in French oak barrels from 16 to 18 months (with up to one-third new oak, depending on the cru) and are bottled unfined and unfiltered. Located in the south of the Côte d’Or Côte Chalonnaise, Rully is considered an insider tip for white and red wines with a particularly good price-enjoyment ratio. The finest wines may well exist alongside the Côte de Beaune plants and often have a charming freshness and a bright, inviting fruit. The former vineyard of the Abbay de Maizières is located in the east of Rully.
