Wine of Auxey-Duresses appellation
The Auxey-Duresses AOC is a village appellation of the Côte de Beaune in the Côte-d'Or. This appellation includes 9 climats classified as Premier Cru

The Auxey-Duresses AOC is located at the entrance to a valley which runs from the Côte de Beaune into the Hautes-Côtes, following the road that leads from Beaune to Autun. Auxey-Duresses (pronounced “Aussey”), together with its hamlets of Petit-Auxey and Melian, is incontestably the site of Burgundy’s old Celtic and Gallo-Roman vineyards. It was formerly an outlying property of the Abbey of Cluny, producing both grains and grapes. The corn-mills have now gone, but the wine presses are still here. Auxey-Duresses was granted its AOC status in 1937. 

Nature determines which plots suit the white wines and which the reds. On the hill of Bourdon, geologically an extension of Volnay and Monthélie, the soil is a pebbly marly limestone mix which gives vigour to the east/southeast-facing Duresses vines. The “Le Val” climat, on the other hand, faces south and has a predominantly limestone soil. In La Chapelle, marl predominates over the limestone. On the hill of Mélian, the fine-textured soil prefigures that of nearby Meursault and Puligny, the paradise of white wines.
