Beautiful Pinot Noir expression of ripe black fruits, peppery hints and a touch of violet on the nose. Silky, with rich but delicate fruit and a long finish.
The 2015 vintage was perfect. The fruit was in an impeccable condition and at optimal ripeness at harvest - a winning duo. Flowering took place in early June, followed by véraison in mid July and harvesting started at the beginning of September.
Auxey-Duresses AOC is located in a valley in the Côte de Beaune, west of Meursault. There are nine Premier Cru sites within the AOC and Les Duresses is arguably the most famous of the nine. The vineyard sits on the south eastern sloping hillside of the Montagne du Bourdon. The soil is rich in clay at the bottom, with the presence of white marl at the top. The vineyard is managed using sustainable practices; only organic fertilisers and composts are used and chemical herbicides have not been used for over 15 years. The vineyard is cultivated in the traditional Burgundian manner. Winemaking
The grapes were hand harvested at optimal maturity and carefully sorted. They underwent 25 days of vinification, including 12 days of pre-fermentation maceration in a temperature controlled vat at 12°C. During fermentation, the cap was regularly punched down and the must was pumped over to ensure the desired levels of extraction and aeration were achieved. The wine was aged for 15 months in oak barrels in the family cellars. 20 to 30% of the oak was new. The use of oak was carefully monitored to ensure the terroir of this 1er Cru site Les Duresses was captured. Lightly clarified prior to bottling.
