2015 Agnès Paquet Bourgogne Chardonnay
In 1999, Agnes Paquest 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.
She took on leases in some other vineyards around a the estate and set off to make exceptional, classic Burgundy.
The Bourgogne Blanc is a blend of two parcels: Lieut-dit "Les Lurets" in Volnay on deep and rich clay soils, and the lieu-dit "Sous le Château" from the Hautes Côtes de Beaune on clay-limestone soils. It's classic, lean white Burgundy. Killer, especially for the price.
