The white Rully is gold flecked with green, and the gold deepens with age. It is redolent with superb aromas of hedgerow flowers (acacia, may, honeysuckle, and a very delicate elderflower) as well as violet, lemon, white peach or flint. Time brings out honey, quince, and dried fruits. Indeed, this wine is full of fruit, which on the palate is lively and well-rounded, meaty and long. It has both the coolness and the polish of marble.
The red Rully is ruby through cerise to dark garnet. Its bouquet is composed of black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) and red fruit (cherry) plus liquorice, lilac, and rose petals, evolving towards cooked fruit. On the palate, the tannins respect the fruit and give the wine a well-defined structure. After a few years' laying-down,
its chewiness becomes deliciously melting. A slightly closed-off after-taste is a good sign of persistence.
