2012 Agnès Paquet Auxey-Duresses Pinot Noir
In 1999, Agnes Paquet decided to take over 3 hectares of organically farmed family vineyards in Auxey-Duresses. She renovated an old stone barn next to her home into a winery and began her second career as a vigneron.
Hidden just up the road from Meursault, Auxey-Duresses remains a relatively unknown appellation, producing fine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir typical of Burgundy.
The 2012 is in its peak drinking window with complex tertiary flavours of forest floor and mushroom blending in with the red fruit. Exceptional aged red Burgundy, especially for the price.
