Auxey Duresses Blanc, Roulot


The 2013 Auxey-Duresses Blanc, which comes from 50-year-old vines that is part fermage and part metayage, has really come up leaps and bounds since I tasted it from barrel last year. Now it has a wonderful bouquet that punches above its weight, subtle custard creme and and almond on the nose, even a hint of coconut. Gorgeous! The palate is well balanced, showing just a little reduction perhaps, but there is very good weight and penetration here, well-judged acidity and a long, lightly spiced finish. This is a sublime Auxey-Duresses Blanc that comes highly recommended
