- 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.
