Notes from North Berkeley Imports:

"The talents of winemaker Vincent Dureuil in Rully are such that it’s easy to forget that there are others making wine in the Côte Chalonnaise. But there just is no other artist in the region that faithfully crafts Burgundy with as much purity, elegance or character as does Dureuil. Not only is Dureuil a gifted winemaker, but also he is blessed with some exemplary older-vine vineyards that for years have been cared for organically.

A selection of fruit from lieu-dit ‘Meix Cadot,’ totalling one acre facing east, was planted by winemaker Vincent Dureuil’s great-grandfather, Pierre Janthial, in 1920. Aromas of lemon zest, lemon blossoms, ripe pears, light pineapple, wildflowers. Broad and layered, with great texture. Long."
