Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2019

    This cuvée is made from a blend of two parcels in this lesser known and often overlooked appellation that sits just above Volnay and Meursault. These vineyards are slightly cooler than Pommard or Volnay and make quite possibly the best value red on our list for the quality. It has a fragrant cranberry fruit aroma. The palate has classic Côte de Beaune crunchiness in its firm tannins giving it an appealing astringency that blends in with the fresh fruit flavours.

    Score: 90-92

    The 2017 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru, a blend of two vineyards and, unlike 2015 and 2016, completely de-stemmed, has a deeper, slightly blacker nose than the Village Cru, certainly displaying more mineralité at this primordial stage. The well-defined palate is taut and linear, displaying impressive backbone considering the appellation in question. This is a great Auxey-Duresses, full of tension and vigor, offering lovely blackberry, black olive and saline notes toward the finish. Don’t overlook this gem from Comte Armand. 2022 - 2035

    Score: 90

    This deftly wooded effort is aromatically similar to the Auxey villages though with a bit more earth influence that can also be found on the slightly finer medium-bodied flavors that evidence more evident minerality on the austere, serious and structured finale. Provided that you have the patience to cellar it, this should deliver fine quality in time. Top Value. Drink 2028+

Producer

Comte Armand

Clos des Épeneaux is Pommard’s most celebrated climat. The 5.23 hectare monopole has been in the Comte Armand family since 1828. Paul Zinetti took over from Benjamin Leroux as régisseur in 2014, and is rising to every challenge at this small, characterful domaine. They also have small holdings in Volnay and Auxey Duresses and, while these wines have the distinctive character of quintessential Côte de Beaune, they are also some of the most sophisticated, nuanced expressions you might taste across these villages. An understated use of new oak matches the textured fruit, and gentle handling in combination with intuitive biodynamic practices afford these wines both strength and delicacy. The domaine has begun to noticeably outpace its neighbours and redefine how the finest terroir of Pommard is capable of not only power but elegance as well.

Region

Auxey-Duresses

Auxey Duresses is a lesser known appellation of 107 hectares located in the eastern hills above Meursault. Its slightly cooler climate with mostly north facing slopes enable its wines to be particularly crisp, fresh and occasionally austere in less warm vintages. Though three-quarters of its production is white, there are a handful of growers who produce reds. Due to its more modest status, its wines tend to provide excellent value for money . They are well worth seeking out particularly in warmer vintages.
