Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(AM=88) Here too the wood is nicely discreet on the fresh and layered mix of pepper, plum, earth, and violet scents. There is fine energy to the intense lighter-weight flavors that culminate in a bitter cherry pit-inflected finish. This isn't especially dense but there is good complexity and a year or two of aging should see it drinking well.

By the Winery:

RULLY 1er CRU, Clos du Chapitre Rouge

The Clos du Chapitre is a monopoly, located on the appellation Chapitre and entirely closed with a stone wall. This plot of more than 1 hectare is located just behind the family house.
As for the Préaux, the yield is controlled by severe pruning, the disbudding (and green harvest if necessary). Here also, with the sorting, we only keep the most beautiful clusters. 
The fermentation lasts between 2 and 3 weeks with daily pumping-over and punching of the cap. Then the wine is aged in oak barrels (50% are new) for 15 to 18 months. A very light filtration is made before bottling so light sediment may deposit. 

Fine, elegant, and structured, the Clos du Chapitre shows the very Burgundian style of Pinot noir. The structure of this wine gives him a very good potential for aging.
