2011 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru Rouge
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Beaune
- Domaine Taupenot-Merme
This is a blend of 2 1ers Crus, with an emphasis on mineral, red fruits and balance rather than broad, over-ripe flavours. Will evolve into a delightful lunch time Pinot. Drink from 2015.
`An exuberantly fresh nose of earth and ripe dark berry fruit and black cherry leads to rich, round and very supple flavors that possess good volume and phenolically mature tannins, all wrapped in a balanced finish that displays only mild rusticity.` 86-89 points, Burghound, January 2013
