Rully, Burgundy

Located in Côte Chalonnaise in the south of Côte de Beaune, Rully is a vineyard of 330 ha (220 ha white, 110 ha red) among which only 100 ha are classified as 1st crus.

In October 2002 Hélène Jaeger-Defaix (wife of Didier Defaix) took over the first part of the vineyard in Rully 1er cru Mont-Palais (white) from her great-aunt Henriette Niepce.  In November 2003, Hélène took over a second plot situated on Rully 1er cru Préaux (red).  It is Helene's wish to carry on the viticultural tradition of the Niepce family, winegrowers since the 16th century.

Henri Niepce, great-grandfather of Hélène, is one of the great figures of Rully, contributing enormously to Rully obtaining AOC status in the 30's, and building on its fame.
