Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The village of Auxey Duresses is located in the center of the Côte de Beaune and borders the villages of Monthelie and Meursault.
The Vintage 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 11 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense and fresh aromas of ripe red berries (strawberry and raspberry) mixed with spices. Complex. Beautiful texture. Elegant but quite firm tannins and subtle oak note. Generous aftertaste.
Food pairing : Red meat grilled or en sauce and all sorts of cheeses, especially our local cheeses like Époisses, Citeaux and Langres.
