Domaine Belleville was established in Rully at the beginning of the 20th century in the heart of wine-making Burgundy. With 22 hectares of vineyards spread out from north to south Burgundy, its wines express a diverse range of characteristics from both the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals. Domaine Belleville was purchased in 2017 by an American couple and group of international friends and partners who have since also acquired the Champagne house Leclerc Briant and Manoir Murisaltien in Meursault.
Domaine Belleville Rully Blanc 1er Cru La Fosse 2020
Nice gold robe appearance with tints of grey, brilliant and limpid. Open and pleasant aromas of fresh fruits backed by mineral substances. On the palate, frank attack, good balance between acidity and mellowness, round, clean and long lasting.
After gentle pressing the must settles for 12-24 hours before the suspended solids are removed. Slow and full alcoholic fermentation takes place in 228 litre oak casks at temperatures of 15-20 °C. The wine is matured in oak casks for a period of 16 months with 25% oak used. The lees are stirred in barrel to encourage body and freshness. Fining and light filtration are used before bottling on the estate.
