Description

The following wines from the historical Côte de Beaune side of the estate in Saint Romain and Auxey Duresses offer exceptional value, to my taste. One gets the substance of well placed older vine material, farmed and vinified with the same respectful and knowing house touch, but at paltry prices due to the lack of esteem for these two villages. I didn’t get to taste the ’17 Saint Romain, but based on my impression of the ’17 Auxey villages, I have to imagine this performing similarly well……This hails from 50-60 year old vines in the east facing, upper hillside Le Marsain and En Poillange lieu dits, a total surface are of roughly 1.2 hectares.
