  • Domaine A. & P. de Villaine Rully Premier Cru Les Margotes 2017


    “From one of the village’s finest sites comes the 2017 Rully 1er Cru Les Margotés, a lovely wine that unwinds to reveal notions of pear, orange rind and almond paste. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and inciive, it’s elegant and chalky, with a penetrating, mineral finish. This is well worth seeking out, and it will evidently be a bottling to follow particularly attentively in future vintages. Drink: 2020-2035. 92 points

    I met the thoughtful Pierre de Benoist a few days before France went into lockdown due to COVID-19, and it was a pleasure to taste these new releases from Domaine de Villaine. As ever, the wines deliver what followers of this address have come to expect: tensile, mineral wines that are refined and understated. This was also my first encounter with one of the domaine’s new wines from Rully, where they have become major landholders and will soon be able to offer an enviably complete portfolio of the village’s finest terroirs.”
