L’appellation Rabourcé se trouve juste au dessus du Cloux sur la partie la plus pentue du coteau. Les sols sont ici constitués majoritairement d’argiles blanches. La forte réverbération favorise le processus de maturation et cette parcelle est toujours mûre la première.
Comme pour le Mont Palais et le Cloux, la fermentation et l’élevage se déroulent en fûts de chêne pendant 18 mois. Puis le vin est mis en bouteilles après une légère filtration.
Le Rabourcé se caractérise par sa grande richesse en bouche et sa puissance qui lui donnent une belle longueur.
Domaine Jaeger-Defaix – Hélène Jaeger-Defaix
In October 2002, Hélène Jaeger-Defaix, an agricultural engineer and oenologist, took over a first parcel of Rully 1er cru Mont-Palais white wine (Saône & Loire) belonging to her great-aunt, Henriette Niepce in order to perpetuate the tradition of this winemaking family since the 16th century.
Henri Niepce, his great-grandfather, is a member of the great figures of Rully. He worked hard in the 1930s and 1940s to get Rully to obtain the AOC and then to establish the reputation of the very young AOC.
Her aim being to buy back the entire estate from her ancestors, she acquired a second parcel in Rully 1er Cru Préaux in November 2003, then the last hectares in 2005. Thus, his estate today extends over 6 hectares including 4.5 hectares in Rully Premiers Crus and 1.5 hectares in Rully Village.
It converted the entire domain to biological farming in 2009, in close collaboration with her husband Didier Defaix winegrower in Chablis (Domaine Bernard Defaix) where Hélène's grapes are vinified.
In the vineyards, the soil is worked only by ploughing and only contact products such as sulphur and copper are allowed to protect them.
