Notes from Domaine Jaeger-Defaix:

"In October 2002, Hélène Jaeger-Defaix took over her first vineyard in Rully 1er cru Mont-Palais white (South Burgundy) from her great-aunt Henriette Niepce. Henri Niepce, the great-grandfather of Hélène, is one of the great figures of Rully. He enormously contributed in the 30’s for Rully to obtain the AOC (appellation d’origine contrôlée) and then to build its fame.

Located in Côte Chalonnaise in the south of Côte de Beaune, Rully is a vineyard of 330 ha (220 ha white, 110 ha red) amongst which only 100 ha are classified as 1st crus. Since the beginning of 2005, we are managing entirely the estate. It means 4,50 ha on the most prestigious first cru of Rully. An AC Rully red has been added to this assortment since the vintage 2011."

Winemaking
The fermentation lasts during 15 days with daily pumping-over. Then the wine is aged in oak barrels (1/3 are new) during 15 to 18 months. A very light filtration is made before bottling so a light sediment may deposit.
