Description

Vineyard Notes

Perched in the western uplands alongside the famous Chardonnay-producing village of Meursault, Auxey-Duresses is a small but substantial wine-producing sub-appellation in the Côte de Beaune of Burgundy. Its vineyards cover both sides of the valley (called a combe in French) that cuts through the low hills just west of the lower Côte de Beaune villages of Meursault and Volnay. Cooling winds flow through this basin during the growing season and result in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a touch of charming rusticity. They are also more approachable in price compared to their Volnay or Meursault counterparts.

Producer Notes

This Auxey is made by the esteemed Comte Armand domaine, located just north of Auxey in Pommard. The wines at Comte Armand are made from biodynamic vines, 100% de-stemmed with whole-grape fermentation, 20-30% new oak; the reds are unfined, unfiltered and the whites are fined and lightly filtered. This red is from 40 years old on average. The terroir is Les Argillas, south-facing, upper part of hill, high (30% active) limestone component to the soil. After 5-8 days cold (13-14° C) maceration, the wine receives 5-10 days natural fermentation. 3-15 days post-fermentation maceration. 18-24 months aging in older barrels
