Henri Jacqueson created the company in 1946. At that time, the wines of Rully were not widely known. As a true forerunner, Henri began offering his wine to private individuals and expanded his estate by acquiring the best plots of Rully and Mercurey. He played an important role in the renaissance of the appellation.
Paul Jacqueson joined his father in 1972 and little by little, took over the domaine. He continued the work of his father with a lot of implication constantly trying to improve the quality of the wines and converting to organic farming it the 2000s.
Nowadays, it is Paul’s daughter Marie and son Pierre that manages the domaine. Marie took over from her father in 2007 while Pierre joined his sister in 2015. Today, the domaine consists of 13 hectares that are mainly situated in Rully as well as some vineyards in in Mercurey and Bouzeron. The domain produces 60% of white wines and 40% of red wines.
Under Paul, and now by his children, Marie and Pierre, the domaine has become adept at a sophisticated use of barrels, the élevage here is key to the quality they consistently achieve, and this rubs off on the négociant ‘Cuvée Sélection’ which is always beautifully finished.
As usual the élevage in barrel here is extremely precise and delicately done with around 20% new wood, the Premiers Crus getting barrels with a little more toast.
Assemblage of 2 vineyards: Fromange and La Barre raised for 12 months in 20% New Oak.
Wine Advocate – 88 points (2018)
Aromas of fresh peach, orange oil and white flowers preface the 2018 Rully Blanc, a medium-bodied, succulent wine that’s elegantly fleshy and expressive. It’s already drinking well.
I was able to taste these two wines from Domaine Jacqueson in Beaune days before France went into lockdown—frustrating for another year my ambitions to visit this well-respected Rully domaine.
