Domaine Carre Auxey-Duresses 'Les Vireux' 2016Regular price $48 Save $-48.00
Denis Carré first fell in love with wine while working harvest in Burgundy as a teenager. In 1975, Denis rented a small parcel of vines and produced his first three barrels of wine, which eventually led to the creation of his small namesake winery in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. Fruit for ‘Les Vireux’ comes from a 0.26 hectare plot of 40-year old vines in Auxey-Duresses, located just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the famed lieu-dit of Les Vireuils (Meursault). The wine is supple and juicy, noted with flavors of stone fruit, lemon cream, and crushed rocks.
