Marie Jacqueson is producing Burgundy that is nothing short of magical in the backwater of Rully, proving once again to really find value, you have to get off the rue nationale. These lots of red and white Rully from Marie, our newest addition to our family of wine-growers, have been incredibly well-received with more requests for reorders than almost any other producer we’ve featured since my visit last winter. The issue is the quantity. Marie was selling her wine just fine before we met so the amounts we’ve been able to bring over have been miniscule, even on the tiny scale that great Burgundy usually measured.
First one up from what is sure to be a legendary 2019, one Galloni’s Vinous Media said of the Pinots, “…the reds are highly perfumed with accentuated floral characteristics are often utterly seductive. The aromatics are delineated and focused: black cherries, wild strawberry, orange zest and blood orange, occasionally cassis on riper Pinot Noirs.”
Marie Jacqueson’s best red is her 1er cru from the vineyard Préaux. The vines are old here, averaging 45 years. The soil is a classic mix of clay and limestone providing for soaring aromatics of strawberry, black cherry, cinammon and roses. The fruit is almost crunchy; incredibly fresh, juicy, really flat-out delicious. Those limestone soils gives the wine great length, with a mineral finish that goes a mile. Great now, great in 10 years, qualitatively worth double the price. There are 96 bottles available and Marie always sells out.
