About the Producer:
In the 1970s, Aubert de Villaine, co-director of Domaine de la Romanée Conti, and his American wife, Pamela, settled in the village of Bouzeron. Upon planting his root in this small village, Aubert made himself a champion of the grape variety that reigns supreme in Bouzeron today—Aligoté Doré. Although the grape was overlooked until 1979 when it first earned the appellation Bourgogne Aligoté de Bouzeron, the I.N.A.O. finally upgraded the appellation to A.O.C. Bouzeron in 1997, largely due to Aubert’s advocacy over the years. Pierre de Benoist, Aubert’s nephew, currently directs the domaine, upholding the sense of tradition, excellence, and standards for which it has become so well-known.

Ratings and Reviews:

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2019 Vintage):
"The most generous Rully in the range is the 2019 Rully 1er Cru Rabourcé, a medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping wine evocative of citrus oil, confit lemon, freshly baked bread and anise. Concluding with a broad, saline finish, it faithfully reflects its sunnier site."
