2014 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru Rouge
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Beaune
- Domaine Taupenot-Merme
This is a blend of Les Duresses and En Champs. The tannins are wonderfully supple and the red fruit ripeness is very charming. The brightness of fruit that so typifies the vintage is really on show here and this shows very well, with good length and persistence. Drink from 2018.
`Reduction pushes the underlying fruit to the background and renders the nose hard to assess. There is excellent energy to the slightly bigger and richer flavors that possess an attractive mid-palate mouth feel that deliver dusty, stony and again moderately austere finish.` - 86/100 points, Allen Meadows, burghound.com, drink from 2020
