After studying medicine and philosophy in the prestigious Sorbonne University in Paris, David Lefort decided to completely change directions and created his estate in Rully on the Côte Chalonnaise in 2010. A self-taught winemaker, he finally achieved his goal in 2013. Operating five hectares of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir certified in organic farming, on the communes of Rully and Mercurey. Some of the plots are even classified “Premier Cru”, including the famous Clos l’Évêque. On this clay-limestone soil, David works manually and the grapes are handpicked.
This Rully Les Cailloux is engaging with notes of warm red berries and floral scents balanced by notes of sweet spices. Showing elegance and proportionate ageing. In the mouth there is good volume and a full, fleshy attack. The evolution is more robust but with a fine texture which readily assimilates the tannic structure, with the whole palate being carried by a pleasant freshness. Depth, power and grace, this is a juicy, toothsome Pinot that you can really get to grips with, whilst retaining a silken-smooth mouth experience.
