Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson, 'Chaponnieres', Pinot Noir, Rully, Cote Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France
Founded by Henri Jacqueson in 1947, succeeded by his son Paul in 1972 and joined by Paul’s daughter Marie in 2006, and more recently by his son Pierre, this Domaine has long been recognised as one of the very best in the Côte Chalonnaise and its wines adorn the lists of many of the finest restaurants in France. They have 13 hectares of wonderfully sited vines, many of which are very old, and prune hard to reduce yields to around 35 hl/ha.“Chaponnières” is on quite deep clay/limestone soils that you find in Rully and was planted in 1985.
This Pinot Noir is aged for 12 months in oak and expresses the crunchy red fruit that you would expect from this excellent Burgundian Pinot that is generous, sweet, pure and accessible!
