About

About The Wine

A blend of five organically grown plots around the village of Rully. The average age of the parcels is forty years, but the oldest vines are well over one hundred years old. This kind of vine age is extremely rare in Cote Chalonnaise and provides a depth that Vincent's fastidious wine growing, and making, captures perfectly.

Crisp citrus and florals sing through some very nice notes of struck match reduction. Classy wood accentuates the depth of fruit and lends a framework to the ripe stone fruit. A great white Burgundy that could bowl many more prestigious appellations for six. Excellent value.

About Domaine Vincent Dureuil-Janthial

Van-son Doo-rey Jon-tea-ahl. Yes, it's a mouthful but this is a name you should get to know. Dureuil-Janthial are widely recognised as the finest estate in Rully and, whilst relatively unknown here, they have a long and loyal following of Burgundian growers who turn to their wines at every opportunity. >

Rully is just 15 minutes south of Cote de Beaune, Dureuil-Janthial have small, but outstanding, holdings, spread across the village. The viticulture is organic and guided by biodynamics and in the winery a kid glove and attention to detail is paramount. Practises common in the greatest appellations of Burgundy are standard here and that sets these wines apart from Rully at large.

Our advice? don't worry about the long name or the vineyards you've not heard of. Don't even worry which cuvee you go for, take a leaf out of Coche's book, and drink these wines as often as you can. It won't be very often given the volumes, but you'll be glad when you do.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

90Points
Wine Advocate

“Opening in the glass with notes of lemon oil, crisp green orchard fruit, wheat toast and nutmeg, the 2018 Rully Blanc is medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, with a pretty core of fruit girdled by impressively racy acids for this warm vintage. Long and penetrating, this has plenty of potential to develop in the cellar, even if it can be enjoyed young, too.”- William Kelley (The Wine Advocate)

Burghound

“Here too there is just enough reduction to reduce the expressive of the ripe and agreeably fresh aromas of citrus rind and passion fruit. The sleek, delicious and nicely voluminous flavors also possess a lovely texture with even better definition on the lightly stony, clean and dry finale. This too could be enjoyed young or held for a few years first.” 88 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
