Auey Duresses


According to historical sources, this wine region southwest of Beaune is one of the Celtic and Gallo-Roman vineyards of the Bourgogne. It was once an annex building of the abbey of Cluny which produced both grapes and cereals. The appellation Auxey Duresses produces 700,000 liters of wine each year on 1.15 km2. 70% of this production comes from Pinot Noir. Previously, a large part of the production was bottled by the winegrowers themselves under the Côte de Beaune-Village appellation. But consumer interest in Burgundy with an attractive price-performance ratio has prompted many winemakers to bottle their wines under the name Auxey-Duresses.
This appellation currently has 9 Premiers Crus on its 93 ha of vines planted with Pinot Noir. Its slopes are facing south and southeast. Its first growths are all located on the southern slope of the Bourdon mountain. The terroir is characterized by stony marl-limestone soils that give minerality and vigor to the vineyard. The climate is continental with very cold winters and hot summers. These are climatic conditions quite favorable to viticulture.
