Dureuil - Janthial - Aligote 2018

There are few other artisans in the Côte Chalonnaise that faithfully craft Burgundy with as much purity, elegance or character as does Vincent Dureuil. Not only is Dureuil a gifted winemaker but also he is blessed with some exemplary older-vine vineyards that have for years been cared for organically—another level of attention that sets Dureuil apart from the rest. His delicate touch translates each individual terroir into a perfect liquid picture of what the best of Rully—and the best of Burgundy, for that matter—can be.
