AGNES PAQUET AUXEY-DURESSESS ROUGE VERTICAL CASE
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.
