- Boasting a castle that has been in the same family for six centuries, Rully (pronounced Ruilly) is the first village you hit when leaving the Côte d'Or to go to the Côte Chalonnaise in the south. Rully produces red and white wines of Village and Premier Cru appellations. Since the early 19th century, it has also been one of the most important producers of Crémant de Bourgogne.

- Tasting NoteThe Rully 2010 is bright ruby red in colour and a has a pretty bouquet of small red fruits. It is round in the mouth with quite a silky tannic structure.

- Rully Rouge 2012 - Wine Enthusiast - December 2015 - 85/100This is tight, with acidity that cuts through the red fruits and perfumed raspberry flavors. It is light and bright, with minimal tannin and just a hint of structure. By Roger Voss (USA)
