  • It was in 1924 that the village of Auxey joined its name to that of their best parcel of vines "Les Duresses", therefore becoming Auxey-Duresses. This village is graced with the prestigious neighbours of Pommard and Volnay, and while these two communes produce uniquely reds the commune of Auxey-Duresses produces reds on the hill of Bourdon which is an extension of Volnay and whites on the fine soils on the Mélian hill.

Press review
    • Auxey-Duresses Rouge 2021 - Vert de Vin - January 2024 - 93-94/100The colour is bright, pale ruby. The nose offers bright aromas of ripe red fruits, with a touch of sweetness (wild strawberry, juicy red cherry, red currants) and a tanginess of raspberry and cranberries. The bouquet develops after aeration and expresses distinct but integrated spicy notes (ground clove, cumin, white pepper, liquorice stick), associated with delicate woody touches (sweet coffee, toast, vanilla in the background with a very slight hint of coconut), We also find floral (fresh cornflower, elderflower) and herbaceous (roasted thyme, dried mint) aromas which add to the complexity of the wine. On the palate, the attack is silky, round, fruity and gourmand. We find the flavours of ripe red fruits (wild strawberry, juicy red cherry, raspberry, red currant), a fine spiciness of white pepper, cloves and cinnamon, combined with a touch of toast and coffee. The tannins are melted, very fine, present especially at the end of the palate. Beautiful length with a salivating acidity integrated into the roundness of the fruity material. A wine of delicacy and gourmandise, well structured and balanced.
