Wine of the Month
Domaine Michel Briday Ruilly Premier Cru 2015 Gresigny
Domaine Michel Briday was established in 1976 in Bourgogne by Michel and Lucette Briday. They now control 15 ha of vineyards in the appellations of Rully, Bouzeron and Mercurey. They also produce Bourgogne rose` and Cremant de Bourgogne.
Since the very beginning they had a clear vision and philosophy regarding their wines. A focus on each of the appellations specific terroirs is crucial to the style of the wines they create. They intervene as little as possible in the vineyard and let each of the local winemakers put their own identity into the wines.
All the Village and Premier Cru grapes are harvested by hand. Usage of new wood is important for the final styles but each vintage demand a different oak usage to create both the complexity and elegance they seek.
The wine if the week is the "Gresigny". The Chardonnay grapes for this wine are grown in the Cote de Chalonnaise and are grown on a density of 10 000 vines pr ha.
