2021 Yves Boyer-Martenot, Auxey-Duresses, Les Ecussaux 6x75cl

"A new addition to our portfolio from one of the up-and-coming appellations in the Côte d'Or, Vincent's Auxey-Duresses is a blend of 50% 1er Cru fruit and 50% Villages fruit. Pretty, aromatic and... juicy with a lovely weight on the mid-palate and lightly grippy, raspy tannins. Joyful and eminently gluggable yet there is a serious, structured edge that will see it reach its peak at 5-6 years old. " (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2020 Comte Armand, Auxey-Duresses, Rouge 6x75cl

VM87-89
*ON ALLOCATION - £228 per case of 6 bottles IB* One of the very finest producers in all of Burgundy, Domaine du Comte Armand is approaching its 200th anniversary very much at the top of its game.... After Pascal Marchant from 1985 to 1998, Benjamin Leroux from 1999 to 2013, Paul Zinetti is the third highly talented winemaker at the helm of this grand estate, and he is producing wines of rare depth, purity and character. The monumental Clos des Epeneaux, for a long time the only wine produced here, still gives the best Grands Crus a run for their money, but just as impressive is the unbeatable value delivered by the Auxey-Duresses cuvées and the delicacy and perfume of the Volnays. You can't go wrong at this address.

2020 Benjamin Leroux, Auxey-Duresses, Blanc 6x75cl

VM87-89
Benjamin has been a good friend of ours since his days at Comte Armand, and his powerful, impressive winemaking style shines through in 2020 where concentration meets with backbone and guile in the... Volnay commune. He remembers his first ever visit to the UK back in 1999 where he spent some time staying with Richard Wheeler (Johnny's father, sadly passed away last year), memorable not least for the friendly dispute regarding the relative merits of local Mersea native Oysters versus their French counterparts! Benjamin’s Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans reflects the greatest attributes of this excellent vintage. Density, richness and structure are all to the fore in a cuvée which gets better with every passing vintage. With demand (and therefore prices) for St Aubin skyrocketing in recent years, Auxey-Duresses has replaced it as one of the best sources of value whites with more than a passing resemblance to the hallowed communes on the other side of the hill. Once again, Benjamin's hand is plain to see through this wonderfully fresh white of great textural interest - one to drink over the next 3 to 5 years, and a brilliant alternative to the classic styles.
