Auxey-Duresses 2007, Domaine Bzikot
Auxey-Duresses is one of the smaller villages of the Côte-de-Beaune nestling in the hills behind Meursault and Monthélie. This Auxey from Bzikot has unfiltered aromas from the Burgundian barnyard, straw and clods of clay. This wine is the result of égrappage total, a macération of 5-10 days depending on the vintage conditions, 15 days of fermentation and then ageing in 50% new oak barrels and 50% with 1 or 2 years. Residual sugar, blackberries, raspberries. This wine is ripe and fresh just as pinot should be. A delicious and simple wine.
