The Taupenot family’s Auxey Premier Cru bottling is more black fruity in 2015 than the villages, offering up a fine bouquet of black cherries, dark berries, woodsmoke, pigeon, soil and just a touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and vibrant, with a good core and impressive mineral drive on the long and gently tannic finish. This is still pretty primary in personality, but will be lovely with a bit of bottle age. 2021-2050.
The 2015 Auxey Duresses 1er Cru comes from two parcels in Les Duresses and Les Grands Champs. It has a very satisfying bouquet with lifted blackberry, briary and light earthy notes. There is a light floral note developing. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, very well balanced with tart red cherry and cranberry leaf, nicely structured with a brisk, lively finish.(NM)
(from Les Duresses and Grands Champs). A very ripe but still agreeably fresh nose speaks of aromas of dark cherry, cassis, earth and planting soil. The medium-bodied flavors possess fine volume, richness and mid-palate concentration along with a good level of dry extract, all wrapped in a firmly structured and lingering finale where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This powerful effort is worth considering provided you can allow it a few years of cellar time first. 2023+
Good bright red. Very fresh black cherry on the nose, lifted by pungent minerality. Quite penetrating and tactile on the palate; less refined than most of these 2015s but shows excellent energy and thrust to its savory crushed-rock character. Finishes with a serious dusting of tannins and lingering floral lift. Not a fleshy wine; in fact, it may be in the process of shutting down in bottle right now. (ST)
