2015 Rully Blanc 1er cru “Pillot”, Eric de Suremain

A super nose - you can literally smell the tension. This has real citric freshness and perfume; it's delicate and alive! Fabulous palate - very direct, very saline and pure with a long captivating finish. This is made as white burgundy once was, tight, refined and measured. A wine that will continue to evolve, and at maturity, provide the myriad complexity and  exquisite flavours for which top flight white burgundy is renowned.  

For a big bear of a man, Eric de Suremain produces the silkiest, most elegant and delicate Burgundy you can imagine and they are wines that I often bring out simply to surprise people at their quality.

His bio-dynamic methods, some of the Côte d’Or’s lowest yields (often on a par with nearby Domaine Leroy), rigorous grape selection and his minimal intervention winemaking policy conspire to produce some of the purest, finest and most complex Burgundy available.
