situational information

The "Moulin aux Moines" vineyard in Auxey-Duresses is one of the four monopole sites of the domaine. The "Vielle Vignes" section of the Monopole was planted in the 1950s in the upper part at 298 m in a north-east orientation.

Terroir

The terroir in this area has a different character, the site is steeper, drier and much deeper.

Information on the expansion

Hand harvest with a yield of 38-44 hl/ha, fermentation in used barriques for 16-18 months, 4000 bottles total production.

Color

Muted ruby red with clear violet reflections.

Nose

The aroma that flows from the glass of the 2017 Auxey-Duresses Vielles Vignes has a cool and finessed charm at first. Fruity notes of sloe, blackberry and blackcurrant mingle with leather, tobacco, dark earth and stony notes. With the necessary oxygen, aromas of noble dark chocolate and floral hints of violets join in.

Palate

On the palate it appears concise, fresh and dark berry, silky it glides over the tongue with feminine playfulness, stimulating acidity and fine-grained tannin. The moderate alcohol of only 12,5 Vol% increases the drinking pleasure even more. What a fine and at the same time powerful drop!

Recommendation

Carafe with sufficient oxygen and enjoy from a Burgundy glass.
