The Deux Montille vineyards are in south of the village of Auxey Duresses. The vines are facing east and are located just below the 1er Cru appellation delimitation. This gives the grapes maximum sun exposure and in 2009, the vines benefited from good weather conditions (maybe the best of the decade?), this gives the wines all its buttery roundness and opulent character. Of course the classic chardonnay acidity balanced with citrus fruits and herbal aromas fill the glass. The influence of the wood has almost faded away and left room for full minerality and a clean finish. Dont wait drink now!
Reviews & Scores
Moderate sulfur compromises mildly the otherwise intense and pungent nose of Auxey-style earthy green fruit and citrus rind aromas. There is fine richness to the round, intense and nicely voluminous flavors that brim with dry extract on the mouth coating finish. As one would reasonably expect given the appellation, there isn't much finesse here but plenty of character. April 2011, Burghound.com
