Celine et Vincent Dureuil 2013 Rully Blanc 1er Cru 'Raclot'
Classic, sophisticated white Burgundy at a steal of a price by an exemplary winemaker.
Vivacious aromas of honeysuckle and beeswax are rounded out with buttered popcorn, lemon oil and coconut. Warm, medium-bodied entry boasts a plump texture with layers of orchard fruit and crushed limestone on a spine of pristine minerality canopied with citrus blossom, fresh butter and white pepper.
Located to the west of the village of Rully upslope, ‘Raclot’ is one of Rully’s highest-altitude premier crus. Hand-harvested, pressed directly, and fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks. Aged for one year in French oak barrels, with approximately 25% new oak. Produced from 40-year-old vines and biodynamically farmed. Vincent Dureil delivers a classic, sophisticated white Burgundy at a reasonable price. Frontlining at $58, this wine is an absolute steal at $29/bottle.
