About d'Auvenay

This is Madame Lalou Bize Leroy’s own private domaine of 3.67 ha. Here Biodynamic and organic methods are used in the vineyards, as at Domaine Leroy and the wines are aged in temperature-controlled cellars in Auxey-Duresses. The microscopic yields mean that quantities of these wines are very limited indeed and most sell out before reaching the list.

Appellation: Auxey-Duresses

A village westwards of Meursault and Monthelie on the road towards St Romain and the Hautes Cotes. There are 9 premier crus vineyards established in Auxey Duresses. The reds can be very good, ranging from light and fruity, to powerful but sometimes rustic. The whites are particualrly good value, rather like miniature Meursaults, less full-bodied and with higher acidity but carrying pletny of character and weight nonehtless.
