2019 Domaine de la Folie Rully 'Clos La Folie'
Long considered a leading producer in Rully. The estate has been in the care of the Noël-Bouton family for three centuries now. Domaine de la Folie is unique in the Rully appellation in that it is the northernmost in the AC and its 32 acres of vines are the highest in elevation. Moreover—and this fact leaps out in the context of Burgundy—all but one of its vineyards are monopoles. Lastly, unlike the main body of vineyards in the central part of Rully to the south, this northern end of the Montagne de la Folie sits on the same vein of limestone as the commune of Puligny-Montrachet, just over three miles away. This walled vineyard occupies the northeast facing slope in front of the house. The current 4.7 acres of Chardonnay were planted in 1972. 100% Single-vineyard Chardonnay. Vines are over 45 years old. Raised entirely in tank, it exhibits lovely citrus and mineral aromas and flavors with creamy undertones and the freshness of the vintage. A real beauty - and a bargain!
