AGNES PAQUET AUXEY-DURESSESS ROUGE VERTICAL 6-PACK
Precision and Finesse
Winemakers like this are born, not made.
You can't learn 'touch'.
we can prove it to you.
Here is the same wine, an Auxey-Duresses Red, from some very old vines in a vineyard called 'Les Hoz'.
Same wine, but three different vintages...three excellent vintages... 2018, 2019, and 2020
And Agnes Paquet has nailed each one.
This is a study, not just of the nuances of Burgundy vintages
But of great winemaking.
Of the gift I call 'touch'.
This is a winemaker that you should have in your cellar
And I know no better expression of her art than this flight of Auxey-Duresses Red burgundy
A good percentage of whole grape in the maceration gives this Auxey red a delicate encapsulated burst of cherry fruit. The Auxey terroir and tannic structure on display, and the ensemble is well-structured and juicy in youth.
