This region includes the southern Burgundian vineyards of Givry, Mercurey, Rully and Montagny which are all close to the town of Chalon just 30 minutes south of Beaune in the heart of Burgundy. Very rural and unspoilt these vineyards are planted with Chardonnay & Aligote for whites and Pinot Noir for reds. The soils are a mix of limestone, schist and clay, and when combined with a warmer climate than Burgundies from further North the wines have a fuller, riper character. These excellent wines generally offer attractive early drinking, that are often a great taste of `Classic Red & White Burgundy` at a fraction of the price to their more illustrios and famous neighbours.
The Domaine was created in the 1920s by the grandfather of the current producer, Christian Belleville, and now extends to 22 hectares of vines on the clay and chalk soils surrounding the village of Rully, in the Cote Chalonnaise.
The 28ha Belleville estate sits in the village of Rully where they cultivate several prized vineyard sites. The house style offers an honest reflection of the mineral rich style of Pinot with ripe summer pudding aromas. A brief maturation in cask adds complexity and softness to the exuberant flavour of cherries . This is very fine Burgundy, refined, elegant with a pure yet intense redcurrant fruit.
