Roulot’s only premier cru bottling of red grapes, the Auxey is perfect for those who enjoy an ethereal, mineral-driven style of Pinot Noir. The nose presents a harmonious medley of dark berries and spice, while the palate echoes the taut, crystalline character of the domaine’s white wines. A chalky core underpins this red that will drink beautifully for at least the next decade.
Perfumed cherry fruit, with floral notes and a perfect purity of fruit. The texture is supple and round. As winemaker Paul Delorme noted: ‘All the work is in the fermentation, after that it’s done, contrary to the whites.’ This is blended from the lieux-dits Bas de Duresses and Grand Champs. The grapes are partially destemmed (30% whole-cluster) and fermented with a careful extraction prior to ageing in mostly used casks.
