On the nose, this Auxey-Duresses has aromas of pink grapefruit and apricots, sweet pastry and hints of struck match. On the palate, the wine has a lovely rich texture, which is well balanced with racy acidity and citrus fruit flavours, which linger on the finish.
he vineyards of Auxey-Duresses, an appellation since 1937, are located just south of Saint Romain and planted on the hills which lead to Meursault. As such, the whites from Auxey-Duresses represent excellent value. The Chardonnay is sourced from south-facing vineyards planted on limestone soil where the vines are 30 years old on average, resulting in wines of beautiful concentration and finesse.
Grapes were brought straight to the winery and pressed immediately upon arrival, in order to preserve delicate fruit flavours. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation took place in French oak barrels. The wine was aged for just over 12 months in 20% new French oak before bottling.
