Prunier Auxey-Duresses red 2018

$39

Michel Prunier and his daughter Estelle craft excellent, traditional white and red Burgundies in their underrated down of Auxey-Duresses. Their reds are punchy and bright, with refreshing mouthfeels. Their whites are smooth, floral, and round, with excellent depth and beautifully layered expressions.

At the village level, the 2018 Auxey-Duresses rouge is the most drinkable young Auxey we have seen in years. There’s an expressive nose of dark cherry fruit and the wine is ripe enough on the palate to feel almost rich. The tannins are ripe and fine-grained, suggesting a wine that could age quite well. Look for a lovely mix of cassis and anise, and a delightfully chewy finish.
