“Dureuil continues to fashion some of the very best wines in the Côte Chalonnaise” –Allen Meadows, Burghound
“If someone asks me which wines from Rully they should seek out, I pause for a moment trying to remember the pronunciation before announcing: Dureuil-Janthial.” –Neil Martin, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Vincent Dureuil can make a strong claim to rank as the finest producer in the Côte Chalonnaise.” –William Kelley, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The immensely talented Vincent Dureuil, only in his mid-30s, produces a stunning range of single-vineyard white and red Burgundies in the Cote-Chalonnaise village of Rully, where his family has been since the 1500s. His tireless vineyard work (he spends 14 hours a day among his vines during much of the growing season, doing most of the vineyard work himself) and his assured but light touch in the cellar make for some of the most surprising and incredible Burgundy values to be found anywhere…
Furthermore, he is equally adept with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which is a rarity in Burgundy, and an amazing feat for any winemaker. Vincent’s wines are balanced, precise, crystal-clear in their expression of terroir, and always fiercely mineral. Every vintage, his wines become more and more impressive.
He has converted entirely to organic viticulture, and never uses chemical pesticides or herbicides of any kind on his vineyards.
