About
The 2018 Rully En Guesnes has turned out brilliantly once again, (…) it's deep and sapid, underpinned by a chassis of powdery tannins and succulent acids.

William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

About The Wine

1.3 hectares of 40-70 year old organic Pinot noir provide the fruit for this tiny, and sought after, bottling from Rully royalty Dureuil-Janthial.

Painstaking winemaking to exacting standards has produced a brilliant wine of detail and depth. The lively fruit is pure and fresh and the underlying notes of raw cocoa and fresh earth add to the complexity. Powdery tannin and delicate acid knit together perfectly.

A burgundy that offers so much for comparatively little. Buy some if you can.

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.

Additional Info

From The Importer

En Guesnes is a cracking little site tucked up behind the 1er Cru Le Meix Cadot. Dureuil has a little Chardonnay here, but it’s the hectare of 40-year-old Pinot Noir vines supported by 0.3-hectares of 70-year-old vines, on the cool, clay/limestone soils that make up the bulk of his holdings. Ever-outstanding, we always request an allocation of this wine but don’t always get one.

Wine Advocate

“The 2018 Rully En Guesnes has turned out brilliantly once again, mingling aromas of cherries and raspberries with hints of raw cocoa and candied peel in a complex bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and refined, it's deep and sapid, underpinned by a chassis of powdery tannins and succulent acids.”- William Kelley (The Wine Advocate)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
