Rully 1er Cru Montpalais 2017, Domaine J-B Ponsot, Burgundy, France
Rully 1er Cru Montpalais opens with aromas of citrus and apple, with hints of flint in the background. Rich, complex, yet fresh attack, with lemon and apple notes, followed by almonds. A very great depth and complexity in the long and clean finish.
These vineyards in Rully 1er Cru were planted in 1954. The plot never freezes but is prone to erosion as it is quite steep. Jean-Baptiste is the grandson of the founder The Rully 1er Cru has 12 months in oak but only 20% New oak, giving us a full rounded but so fresh and fruity wine>
A treat – but needs food!
