2009 Latour Henri, Auxey-Duresses Vieilles VignesDec. 2010
In bottle for 2 months. Beautiful red fruits jump from the glass before a deeper, darker core starts to exert itself. There’s a little fat and good structure. The flavour ahs a slight spice to it, and grows nicely in the mid-palate.
2007 Potel Nicolas, Auxey-Duresses Vieilles VignesJul. 2009
Paler colour than the Montagny. A pretty, high-toned nose. In the mouth it’s more intense though shows less fat than the Montagny. Lovely wine at its level.
1998 Latour Henri, Auxey-Duresses Vieilles VignesMar. 2006
The back label suggests that this should be reaching it’s peak 3-5 years from the vintage – hopefully it’s not past its peak! Medium-plus ruby-red colour – looks very purposeful. The nose is deep, a little meaty, sugar coated fruit and short-lived oak-toast. The palate is clean and precise with plenty of acidity and fruit that’s starting to show some maturity. No really dense fruit here so it’s better with food, but very svelte tannins for a 98. Super price at ~12 Euro.
