2014 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru, Comte Armand

A great cuvée here, with fruit coming from two plots within this often overlooked appellation, Les Breterins and Les Duresses. Depth to the nose with ripeness to the fruit and serious, fine tannins. Paul focusses on wines of elegance, and in spite of the density this certainly delivers. A bargain for this level of complexity and quality of winemaking.

2014 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru, Comte Armand
Domaine Comte Armand

With the Clos des Epeneaux in the hands of the Comte Armand since 1826, this estate celebrates a rich and successful history. 2014 was young Beaune native Paul Zinetti’s first vintage at the helm of the estate, and in the years to come he’s certain to grow in renown and stature. Here is a winemaker with a golden touch and high aspirations, not least to see the Epeneaux climat awarded grand cru classification. We look forward to seeing how the wines of Comte Armand develop.
