2019 Jaeger Defaix Rully Blanc 1er Cru Les Cloux
The 2019 Rully Blanc 1er Cru from the fine grower, Jaeger-Defaix; the family Domaine of Hélène Defaix, wife of Didier Defaix (of Chablis producer Domaine Bernard Defaix). Most of the Jaeger-Defaix vineyards are premier cru and brilliantly situated. All the vineyards are managed organically.
“Outstanding. A smoky broad-ranging nose is comprised by notes of mineral reduction, spiced apple, lemon zest and a hint of herbal tea, all of which is trimmed in relatively generous wood. The sleek and nicely detailed medium weight flavors possess more refinement on the citrusy and slightly firmer finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. I very much like the texture, and this is altogether lovely – worth checking out.” – Allen Meadows
