2013 Auxey-Duresses Blanc
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Beaune
- Domaine Taupenot-Merme
Terrific mix of racy stoniness and spicy, honeyed white fruits. Lovely intensity, poise and balance. Drink from 2016.
`A good-value Burgundy is hard to find but this Chardonnay from the Côte de Beaune has racy mineral notes with green apples, stone fruit and spice. A balanced use of oak gives a creamy, buttery finish. Spread over 20 appellations in the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, wines from Domaine Taupenot-Merme give a sense of place and purity of fruit, the perfect classic wine gift.` Nuria Stylianou, Evening Standard, December 2016
