Maison Joseph Drouhin, Rully (Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France) 2018

($27):  Consumers can safely select virtually any wine from Drouhin, another top-tier Burgundy producer.  Indeed, I could include their Bourgogne Blanc “Laforet,” or their Mâcon-Villages, both of which typically retail for less than $20 a bottle, but I chose their Rully, from a village in the Côte Chalonnaise.  Whites from Rully (“roo-e”) can be angular, but not Drouhin’s 2018 (remember producer, producer, producer).  The ripeness of the vintage added depth to its cutting edginess.  It punches far above its weight class.
