ANTONIN RODET RULLY 2019
Our House Antonin Rodet has been rhyming with Mercurey since 1875, the year of the founding of the House, by Antoine Rodet, known as Antonin.
His father, Francois was a grocer in Chalon-sur-Saone and a clever businessman and quickly added the trade of wine-broker to his various activities. Chalon-sur-Saone at this time was an important hub in the wine trade. The town, in the 19th Century, with the arrival of the railway and important river traffic, experienced an important economic boom. The young Antoine thus learned about business dealings at a young age.
From generation to generation, although the Rodet family is no longer involved, the spirit of Antonin and his father lives on : fierce defenders of the vineyard of Southern Burgundy to which they dedicated their lives.
This appellation of the "Côte Chalonnaise" sometimes resembles the wines of the Côte de Beaune, both on red wines and on white wines. The Rully vineyard is located not far from the magnificent vineyards of Puligny Montrachet and Meursault to the north, Mercurey and Givry to the south.
The vineyard of Rully is very old, it was developed by the Dukes of Burgundy. Its vineyard extends over hills of more than 200 meters of altitude overlooking the Saône plain.
It can be consumed now or laid down in a cellar for the next 3 years.
