This Rully blanc comes from the lieu dit "Les Chaponnières du Dessus", in the northern portion of Rully, near Chagny. Planted at the bottom of the slope on deep soils that are full of clay and seemingly without a single stone, this organically farmed vineyard is more than 50 years old. However, its older age does not prevent it from being in excellent condition! For this wine, the aging lasts between 12 and 14 months; Alix de Montille insists yet again that stainless steel plays an important role. Her Rully wines rest in stainless steel about four months after they finish their time in barrel. The goal with this technique is to bring freshness to the wines. We use approximately five to twenty percent new casks primarily made from Allier wood that sees a long yet light toasting. The first racking occurs after about one year of wood aging, after which begins the second, four- to six-month phase in stainless steel, which preserves the wine's freshness and tension. We finish the aging with a light fining followed by a similarly light and respectful filtration before bottling.
