This may be Rully's greatest Premier Cru: nestled in the heart of the village's best vineyards. It is entirely enclosed by a stone wall and is a "monopole' - being 100% owned by Domaine Jaeger-Defaix. With beautiful purity, pretty berry fruit and guts and staying power underneath, this is outstanding value for money, rivalling reds from the Côte de Beaune. Drink 2018-27
Domaine Jaeger-Defaix is owned by Didier and Hélène Defaix,of the well respected Chablis estate. With 100% Premier Crus vineyards, situated just south of the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation and producing wines using organic viticultural techniques (the estate is currently converting to organic certification), this is considered one of the foremost estates of the Rully appellation.
Fine, elegant and structured, the Clos du Chapitre shows the very burgundian style of Pinot noir. The structure of this wine gives him a very good potential for ageing.
