DOMAINE JAEGER-DEFAIX MONT-PALAIS RULLY 1ER CRU BLANC
Hélène Jaeger-Defaix manages this estate in the same same spirit as their vineyards and estate in Chablis. They farm organically and the vines have an average age of at least 35 years. When the hand picked grapes arrive the pressing is gentle and slow to extract the best juice. Post fermentation the wine is aged for a further 18 months in oak barrels of 1 to 5 years old with moderate “batonnage” to enhance the elegance of the wine.
A gold colour. Aromas of peach and apricot on both nose and palate. This wine is delicate and perfumed with a rich and pleasant final. A beautiful wine which will enhance any dish, particularrly well suited to fish dishes or with goats cheeses.
