2009 Comte Armand, Auxey-Duresses 1erMar. 2011
A blend of two premier crus. Nervous, quite wide then a darker depth with some mineral/coal – a very interesting nose. Good balance and a lovely, lovely length – actually the length is the defining feature of this wine – really super!
2009 Roulot Guy, Auxey-Duresses 1erDec. 2010
A blend of two premier cru vineyards; Les Duresses and Grands Champs. Also a little reduction. More richness and a lovely freshness. Good fine tannin. I find this lovely.
2003 Comte Armand, Auxey-Duresses 1erMar. 2005
One-third from the climat of Les Duresses (lots of brown clay) and two-thirds from Les Bréterins at the beginning of the village and touching Le Val. Stony soil here with more marl and typically giving a little extra finesse. Good depth to the nose. The palate’s profile is quite fresh with a good grab to the tannins. Perhaps the finish is a little short(?)
