About This Wine...

“Bright blueish crimson. Lots of layers and interest here. Bright bitter cherry notes on the nose. Racy but not thin. Tense and rather thrilling. Excellent, serious wine and really exciting! Did the cooler location help? Drink 2018 -2025.” 

17/20 Jancis Robinson 2017

 

“The 2015 Auxey-Duresses Village, a blend of 35- and 65-year-old vines, had finished its malolactic a week prior to my visit. It has an ebullient nose with blackberry, bilberry and dried violet scents, well defined and almost Volnaysian in style thanks to its richness. The 14 degrees natural alcohol on the palate is neatly disguised by the 3.33 pH. It feels generous and deep, cut with a sorbet-like freshness, whilst the finish has an attractive grainy texture and good backbone for a village cru. Drink 2018 – 2028.”

89-91/100 Robert Parker 2016
