Bourgogne Côtes d'Auxerre (pronounced “Ausserre”) is a regional wine appellation located 20 km (12 miles) west of Chablis in northern Burgundy. Like the vineyards of its famous neighbour, the grapes are grown in limestone-rich Kimmeridgian and Portlandian soil that give the finished wine a distinct minerality.
Red and rosé wine from Pinot Noir (and white wine from Chardonnay) are produced under this designation. The noticeable acidity is a common descriptor that provides the wines with elegance and brightness. In a warm vintage like 2017, these marginal appellations really shine, managing to achieve that Holy Grail of pure, ripe fruit, with retained freshness and nerve. This Pinot does exactly that, and is so irresistibly drinkable and refreshing that one looks for more even after the last sip.
A very classic, traditional-tasting Burgundy, recalling the best of yester-year vintages that were slightly cooler and more 'French' than many today. Certainly a wine to savour and will suit the warmer months perfectly.
