2016 Auxey-Duresses Rouge

Christophe Buisson

Just west of Meursault and the twin throughways—the D974 and A6—that form Burgundy’s spine lies Auxey-Duresses, one of the less-well-known villages of the Côte de Beaune and home to a population of 350. Christophe Buisson makes a red from this village as well as a red and a white from neighboring Saint-Romain. These wines—and the Auxey-Duresses, in particular—might be the most immediately charming red Burgundies we import. Christophe organically farms his .55 hectare of Auxey-Duresses vines, planted in 1962, and ages the wine in old oak barrels for eighteen months. This red is bright, polished, and extroverted, coating your palate with flavors of cherry, pomegranate, strawberries, and raspberries. A highly versatile wine, it pairs especially well with roast lamb, chicken, duck, beets, or a mushroom risotto.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
