Description

Henri Jacqueson planted his first vines in 1946 and was instrumental in establishing Rully as a high‐quality appellation. Now run
by his grand‐daughter Marie, the Jacqueson domaine is recognized among the very best in the Côte Chalonnaise.

Tasting Notes: An open and expansive wine with aromas of white peach, apricot, and ripe pear, with a strong underlying minerality. Elegant and well‐balanced on the palate, with intense fruit leading to a long, mineral finish.

Serve With: Enjoy with strong cheeses, fricassee of wild mushrooms, herb-stuffed roast chicken, pork tenderloin, and more…
