Auxey-Duresses is situated in the heart of a valley that starts in the Côte de Beaune and pushes through the Hautes-Côtes on the route of La Rochepot and Autun. With its small villages of Petit-Auxey and Melin, Auxey-Duresses is without a doubt, one of the sanctuaries of the gallo-roman and celtic vines. This ancient town was dependent on the Abbey of Cluny, which main activities were milled flour and grape presses. Only a few Domaines remain today producing from this Appellation established on 1937.
The Auxey-Duresses “Moulin aux Moines” vineyard is one of the Domaine’s 3 monopoles (vineyard exclusively owned by the Domaine). This cuvee comes from the bottom of the plot, close to the stream “Les Clous” and bring freshness to the vines. There is a small proportion of sand in the soil that is extremely filtering.
Hand-harvested. The crop is sorted on a sorting table. This is the cuvee with the most of whole grapes: we kept 60% of whole grapes which have a role in this wine texture. We do a slow fermentation and maceration in cement tanks for 20 days using wild yeasts only. Daily pump overs to fix the color and the aromas. At the end of the maceration, we press and fill oak barrels for ageing for 10 months. The wine is not filtered. This cuvee has also a very low quantity of sulfur, since we only add a very small quantity of SO2 a little time before bottling but not before that step.
This wine is well structured with strong tannins and spiced, peppery aromas. A wine of fruits and terroir with rich aromas. Vinified with very low sulfur, this is a vibrant cuvee, with a great purity and "energy".
