Domaine Lafouge Auxey-Duresses "Les Ecusseaux" 1er Cru 2021


Available Now!

Alcohol: 13%

Grape(s): 100% Pinot Noir

Localization: Auxey Duresses, Burgundy, France

Tasting Notes: Dark berries, black cherries, coffee bean, a complex base of soil, woodsmoke, fresh thyme and just a hint of oak. Full-bodied, complex, beautifully soil-driven, fine focus, lovely acids, fine-grained tannins, long, beautifully balanced finish. There is a fine touch of sucrosité to the fruit at the core of this wine that augurs very, very well for its evolution in bottle.

The Domain: This family Domaine has been established in Auxey-Duresses for several generations (since 1650). It specializes in the production of Auxey-Duresses whites, reds, and 1ers Crus Climat du Val, La Chapelle, Les Duresses, and Les Ecusseaux. The vines are worked with respect of "terroir". Grapes have always been hand-picked. Come to our cellars for a tasting and a guided tour.
