Rully, David Moret
David Moret is a micro-négociant making only white wines in his small cellar in Beaune. He studied oenology, but then went on to sell winemaking supplies before finally deciding to make wines himself. With no family-owned vines, he bought grapes to vinify, purchasing his first barrels in the late 1990s and starting the Moret-Nominé label in 2000. Since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from top growers, to vinify in his cellars. The wines he makes are exceptional examples of each terroir.
This wine is pale golden in colour. The nose is full with a varying bouquet of flavours; elderberry, lemon, white peach and hints of flint. The palate strikes the characteristically Burgundian balance between acidity and richness, with bright fruit, nuts, oatmeal and notes of honey, a rounded palate and a long finish.
Rully is a village that is worth seeking out; in the right hands (ie David Moret!), it can produce amazing quality White Burgundy which would cost you a LOT more form a more famous village. Whilst David also makes exceptional Meursault, Puligny & Chassagne-Montrachet, this wine gives you a window into that world at a fraction of the price.
A lovely wine for fish with beurre blanc or lobster with garlic butter!
