Comte Armand Auxey-Duresses Premier Cru Rouge 2017
Winery: "Wines are the very image of the quality of fruit they derive from. With utmost respect toward the grape, our harvest is 100% de-stemmed, keeping most of the berries whole, not crushed.
The grapes of two of the most prized parcels of the village are assembled for this wine. Les Breterins is a south-facing parcel with light, white soil prompting earlier ripeness and wines abundant with fruit. Les Duresses is southeast facing with brown clay earth giving more dense, and tannic results. The complementarity of these two parcels results in a serious, powerful wine."
