Affordable White Burgundy
Want to drink Great White Burgundy without the big price tag? And I just secured a delicious wine from Louis Latour, Rully Blanc from the Cote Chalonnaise. Rully is the first village in the Côte Chalonnaise as you move south out of the Côte-d’Or, where the soils are a mixture of clay/limestone to pure limestone, ideal for the growing of Chardonnay. Owing to the relatively small output and the widely varying orientation of the vines, a consistent supply of good quality Rully is hard to come by, hence its appearance on the Maison Louis Latour list only in vintages of universally acknowledged quality like 2016.
We have the best price online by a mile!

A beautiful, pale color. Aromas of white peach, orchard fruits and almonds fill the glass. In the mouth if gives up honeysuckle, floral notes and rich texture nicely balanced by fine acidity and a vibrant mineral quality. The finish is round, ample complex and sneaky long with a touch of hazelnut at the end.
