- Rully is the first village in the Côte Chalonnaise as you move south out of the Côte-d'Or, where the soils are a mixture of clay/limestone to pure limestone, ideal for the growing of Chardonnay. Owing to the relatively small output and the widely varying orientation of the vines, a consistent supply of good quality Rully is hard to come by, hence its appearance on the Maison Louis Latour list only in vintages of universally acknowledged quality.
