Domaine Agnès Paquet, Auxey-Duresse

To maintain the family’s wine heritage, Agnès Paquet changed career direction after university and started studying winemaking, before taking over the family domaine; her first vintage was 2001. This wine is from a 2.8ha parcel old vines averaging 85 years old. It has lovely aromas of lemon and fresh apple, leading to a steely palate with crunchy apple fruit, a nice creamy texture and well-integrated oak. It’s very enjoyable now.
