TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The Domaine A.P. Villaine Rully Margotes is made with organically farmed Chardonnay grapes from Burgundy. It’s a magnificent and honest wine, scoring 92 on Robert Parker, and has an ABV of 14%. Filled with wonderful elegance, it has aromas of white flowers and fine chalk, with apple and pear notes. It’s medium to full-bodied on the palate, with a satiny mouthfeel, and notes of pear, orange rind, and almond paste. It remains fresh throughout, and has a mineral finish.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

Pair your Domaine A.P. Villaine Rully margoes 1er cru with mild, soft cheeses and cured meats. It’s great with fish like salmon and tuna, and brilliant with shellfish. Try it with steamed mussels, or a lobster pasta.

A RELUCTANT VIGNERON

A reluctant hero in the world of wine, Aubert de Villaine grew up the heir of wine legacy, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. As a young man, he was never as interested in wine as an heir was expected to be, instead, pursuing interests in literature and law. He spent some time in New York working for a Burgundian wine importer, but returned home to become co-director of Romanée-Conti.

In 1971, he and his American wife, Pamela, settled in Bouzeron, a village in the Côte Chalonnaise. He began to make his own wines, away from the holds of international reputation. It was a rundown domaine when Aubert and Pamela first arrived, but with determination, they studied their unique terroir, and have become pioneers in what was once a forgotten Burgundy enclave. Today, it is Aubert’s nephew, Pierre de Benoist, that directs and handles the domaine. Aubert is still there, proudly watching Pierre continue and uphold the traditions of excellence.
