2016 Auxey-Duresses Rouge
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Beaune
- Domaine Taupenot-Merme
This is exceptional for the appellation. The vines here are 70 years old and the fruit comes mainly from one parcel. It has minerality but also complete ripeness. The tannins are perfect and really stylish. Excellent vlaue.
`The 2016 Auxey-Duresses Village has a tightly wound bouquet of raspberry pastilles and strawberry fruit. The palate is well balanced with crisp red berry fruit, grainy in texture with a pinch of pepper on the finish. Not a deep wine, but fresh and true.` 86-88 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate.
