Picamelot "Clos Du Chaigne" Rully 1er Cru Blanc 2007

We asked David Roland of Cellier Henry IV in Givry to recommend some white Burgundies to go with fois gras we were having as the first course of a birthday dinner.  Naturally, he agreed we needed a “fat” white to stand up and complement the strong flavor and substance of fois gras, and he recommended several whites we then tasted at home.  The “Clos Du Chaigne” 2007  Rully  premier cru from Louis Picalemot was super.  “Profound and round” is what we found in this white.  This white is something we found ealier (see previous post) but completely forgot about!  Our second tasting again confirmed our original findings that this wine had a wonderful glycerine-silkiness and lingering flavors with plenty of “fat”, smooth roundness.  Very fulfilling and delicious….and priced between €14-€16!
