Agnes Paquet, Auxey-Duresses Rouge 2018Regular price $45.00 Save $-45.00
Variety: Pinot Noir
Making a name for yourself in the wine world is hard no matter where you are based, but being located in Burgundy makes this nearly impossible without a famed family name to back you. Agnes did not have this. What she does have is hard work and a belief in what she is doing. Agnes, year after year, makes elegant and delicate wines with a real sense of place. The wines drink exactly as they should for the level of designation and village they represent.
This Pinot Noir comes from the lieu dit site “Les Hoz” located in the Auxey-Duresses appellation. Vines are 20 to 60 years old. The younger vines undergo a little bit of whole cluster fermentation, while the older vines are completely destemmed. Ageing is done for one year in barrel, with 15% of it new, finishing with four months in stainless steel before bottling.
