Les Avaux is rarely found on labels, with the vineyard being best known for providing the main volume for the Hospices de Beaune’s Cuvée Maurice Drouhin. This example is firmly structured, ambitious and built for long-term ageing.

“A new cuvée this year to replace the Grèves and Vignes Franches grapes where agreement with the owner could not be reached. Medium deep purple, slight spritz and fermentation aromas on the nose make the bouquet hard to judge – but this has not yet been racked. Medium deep purple, plump and gorgeous ripe raspberry fruit, just the right structure behind, some orange peel, very pretty and certainly long.” 4 stars [10/01/2021]
We generally use specialised fine wine delivery couriers rather than standard couriers, giving a much higher level of care and accuracy in delivering fine wines safely to you. Wines can be delivered duty-paid to UK addresses upon payment of the required duty, VAT, delivery and storage charges (if applicable). Duty and VAT are as set by HMRC at the time of delivery. Delivery charges are based on number of cases to be delivered and are standard for all UK addresses except highlands and islands. Please ask for a quotation for highlands and islands, transfers to another bonded warehouse and for international transfers.
