2016 AUXEY-DURESSES, Taupenot-Merme. Burgundy
"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'.
