Auxey Duresses Rouge Premier Cru Comte Armand 2019 (750ML)
89-91 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: “The 2019 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru, a blend of two vineyards Les Beautrains and Les Bas des Duresses as usual, matured in around 25% new oak. It has a refined bouquet with a little more purity and sensuality compared to the Auxey Village. The palate is well balanced with gentle grip on the entry, quite rich but fresh in style with candied orange peel infusing the mixture of black and blueberry fruit. Crunchy, almost brittle texture towards the finish which is surprising given the type of growing season. Recommended.” 12/20
89-91 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: “This is also quite ripe with its aromas of poached plum, black cherry, earth, and a touch of floral character. The saline-inflected medium-bodied flavors possess fine very and richness while delivering slightly better length on the moderately grippy and rustic finale.” 04/21
92 Points, Charles Curtis, Decanter: “An assemblage of the premiers crus, Les Bréterins and Bas des Duresses, the former has thin soils right on the limestone, while the latter has more clay. The resulting blend has lovely, fresh cherry fruit, yet is not lacking in structure. The overall impression on the palate is of a supple wine, with a generous ripeness matured with a good proportion of new casks.” 10/20
