THE WINE

Crafted from a single hectare of Premier Cru vineyards behind the family home, the Clos du Chapitre is fine, elegant and structured; truly a very Burgundian style of Pinot Noir. With 18 months in 50% new oak contributing a warming but well handled spice note to the ripe red cherry fruit.

THE WINEMAKER

It all started in 2002 when Helene Jaeger-Defaix took over her first vineyard in Rully from her Great Aunt. A passion for Rully has always been present in the family with her Great Grandfather Henri contributing enormously in the quest for Rully to obtain AOC status back in the 1930s.

The jewel in the Domaine's vineyards is the Clos du Chapitre, considered the finest Premier Cru site in Rully, of which Jaeger-Defaix owns completely (monopole).
