Diam. The Clos du Chapître is a monopole for this producer. The one-hectare plot is located behind the family house and cellars within the Rully 1er Cru Chapître, enclosed by a two-metre-high stone wall. The Pinot yields here are controlled by severe pruning, de-budding and green harvesting. There is also manual sorting of bunches to keep only the most beautiful clusters of fruit. This year, the wine was aged in oak barrels (10% new) for 12 months before settling in tank before bottling. 

Jancis Robinson MW has written that the wines from this site “offer proof that the Côte Chalonnaise can now field wines of serious interest to those raised on Côte d’Or wines.” As always, the Clos du Chapître delivers the expected step up from the village Rully in depth, structure and complexity, yet there’s no lack of juicy brightness courtesy of this utterly charming vintage. Complete, tense and mineral with a crushed velvet mouthfeel, this is looking great.

Reviews

“This is aromatically similar to the Préaux but with a slightly spicier quality and in particular, black pepper. Once again I like the mid-palate texture to the succulent but punchy flavors that conclude in a firm, mildly rustic and better balanced finale that is structured enough to repay 5 to 8 years of keeping.”

“A very cherry nose very nice – and that’s before the lovely floral perfume rises form the glass. Freshness but here is density of flavour too – a little caramel in the finishing flavour – but then fading to finish more focused on the fruit again. That’s a very delicious wine – I’d wait 2-3 years for things to open out and the oaky caramel to fade – a similar patience as for the oak on the white – but these are both lovely!”
