Just over the hill from Meursault Meix Chavaux lies a lesser-known Auxey Duresses vineyard called Les Fosses, the source for this wine.This has a bright focused acidity, but also that rich nuttiness that is thehallmark of good Meursault. Lovely, rich, and for me, a Meursault in all but name. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer, 1/2013)

Description

Auxey-Duresses (pronounced “Aussey”) stands at the entrance to a valley which runs from the Côte de Beaune into the Hautes Côtes, following the road that leads from Beaune to Autun amongst hump-backed hillsides. Together with its hamlets of Petit-Auxey and Mélian, Auxey-Duresses is incontestably one of Bourgogne’s Celtic and Gallo-Roman wine-growing districts. It was formerly an outlying property of the abbey of Cluny, producing both grains and grapes. The corn-mills have now gone but there are still wine presses. Auxey-Duresses was granted its AOC status in 1937.
