As such, Chanzy are one of the few Burgundy producers to achieve Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3; the most highly regarded certification for agriculture in France.

    In The Cellar
    In tuns and in 450 L barrels for ten months and then five months of flavor maturation in stainless steel vats. Cold pre-fermentation maceration for ten days with pumping over and punching down under temperature control throughout the fermentation.

    In The Vineyard
    Rully vineyards stretch for about four kilometers from Chagny where it has a few climats, to the southern limit of the Rully commune where it adjoins the Mercurey vineyards. This area has a remarkable limestone terroir with enough marl and clay for the Chardonnay grape variety to have found its land of choice. The red wines, which are in the minority, are tender and fruity with a beautiful liveliness that underlines their exquisite minerality.
    On the nose, notes of red and black fruits are present with blackcurrant, cherry and blackberry. The second nose reveals floral aromas with violet and rose.
