Full-bodied whites - AUXEY-DURESSES, Taupenot-Merme. Burgundy

2016 AUXEY-DURESSES, Taupenot-Merme. Burgundy

Bin: 229
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Auxey-Duresses is a relatively little-known village, tucked just behind Meursault. An outstanding source of (relatively) good value Burgundy, particularly in good vintages.
"Geologically, Auxey-Duresses is an extension of Monthélie and Meursault, with stony limestone soils in vineyards that skew often to the southeast, giving them prime exposure. Most of the village’s vineyards sit at the entrance to one of many narrow valleys, or combes, that run up into the ‘Hautes Côtes’ (“upper slopes”) and forested mountains to the west. These valleys serve as funnels for cool air from the hills above, so southern-leaning aspect of the vineyards is counterbalanced by the slightly cooler microclimate" - 'SommSelect'.
Grape Variety: 100% Chardonnay, matured in oak for one year (minimal new wood).
Producer: Romain Taupenot is the 7th generation of his family to run the estate. They are based in Morey-St-Denis, neighbouring Chambolle-Musigny, but have vineyards in 20 appellations in several villages. In total they have 13 hectares under vine.
Old Bridge Rating: A great year and a fine producer. This is fine white Burgundy at a not-too-silly price.
