Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delicate aromas of white tree fruit and honey on nose. Mouth-watering palate gives bitter almond, white tree fruit, honey and a touch of lemon. Dry and elegant, with lingering bitter almond/citrus finish.
Auxey-Duresses is a village nestled in the Côte de Beaune with limestone soils. Vineyards are planted with a southeast-facing orientation on hillsides. This is a Chardonnay based wine that's oak aged.- Community Wine Review
