Tasting notes: "The 2018 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru Les Duresses is another success, exhibiting notes of cassis, wild plums, burning embers and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, it's one of the more structured wines in the range, its pure core of fruit girdled by youthfully chewy tannins and lively acids." - Wine Advocate
About the winery: Domaine Lafouge is a family estate established in Auxey-Duresses since 1650. For them, working the vines with respect for the terroir is essential, as is a style of wine combining finesse and elegance. The harvest has always been manual.
