The young and talented Vincent Dureuil, only in his mid-30s, produces a wonderful range of single-vineyard white and red Burgundies in the Cote-Chalonnaise village of Rully, where his family has been since the 1500s. His tireless vineyard work (he spends 14 hours a day among his vines during much of the growing season, doing most of the vineyard work himself) and his assured but light touch in the cellar make for some of the most surprising and incredible Burgundy values. He is equally adept with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Vincent’s wines are balanced, precise, crystal-clear in their expression of terroir, and known for their minerality. He has converted entirely to organic viticulture, and never uses chemical pesticides or herbicides of any kind on his vineyards. 'If I see his name on a wine list, I don't give it a second thought and simply order his wine.' (Jean-Francois Coche)

If you are a white Burgundy lover, this is one to discover and revel in its enjoyment. Made of 100% Chardonnay from clay and limestone soils from the 1er Cru site of Meix Cadot in Rully, this stands out as an exceptional example of terroir as well as a great value. Made from hand harvested fruit, with zero herbicides, Vincent plows the earth himself to keep his soils pure and healthy. Le Meix Cadot is one of 22 Premier Cru vineyards in Rully, and in this example aligns more in complexity with a great Puligny or Chassagne-Montrachet. We receive small quantities of these wines each year.

BurghoundHere the pungent nose presently is composed by notes of reduction and very generous wood so I would strongly advise decanting this if you're tempted to try a bottle on the younger side. Otherwise the very rich, concentrated and full-bodied flavors possess seriously good power and buckets of palate coating extract that serves to buffer the firm acid spine on the hugely long finish where a touch of wood resurfaces. This is a notably big but well-balanced effort that should amply reward 5 or so years of cellaring.
