Comte Armand Auxey Duresses 1er Cru 2009, 750mL (BH89-91) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Comte Armand Auxey Duresses 1er Cru

750mL

Vintage: 2009
Region: France--Burgundy--Red
Appellation: Auxey Duresses, Cote de Beaune

BH89-91
Rated 89-91 points by the Burghound: `(a blend of two 1ers, the older vines Les Breterins and Bas de Duresses - the vines run from 35 to 75 years of age). A completely different nose of pungent earth and ripe dark berry fruit aromas that are in keeping with the serious, concentrated and seductively rich medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of tannin-buffering extract, all wrapped in a long, focused and complex finish. This is really quite good for what it is and is actually less rustic than it typically is, probably because the phenolic ripeness of the tannins is so high. Worth considering for value.`Additional Notes from the Burghound: `Benjamin Leroux described the 2009 vintage as a `relatively easy one because the growing season wasn`t difficult and the harvest produced fruit that was ripe, clean and balanced. We began picking on the 12th of September and the vinification was straightforward. I like the `09 reds because unlike some of the whites that suffer from a bit of surmaturite, they are quite pure and reflect well the underlying terroir.``
