Hautes Côtes de Beaune Blanc, Domaine Agnès Paquet, Burgundy, France 2019
Regular price £33.30
A wine which shows much more sophistication than its appellation would suggest. Aromas of lemon, hawthorn, and a hint of quince blossom into juicier fruit pretty quickly in the glass. In the glass, rounded orchard fruit and white peach accompanied by a savoury element that keeps the wine from being too heady or over-the-top.White Chardonnay
Domaine Agnès Paquet
Agnès Paquet’s family has held an important parcel of vines in the appellation Auxey-Duresses since the mid-1950s. Until 2000, the family rented the land to local vignerons. It was then, when the family decided to sell the vineyard, that Agnes decided to take on the land herself and become a winemaker. The Domaine Agnès Paquet today extends over 13 hectares (over 31 acres), and is considered locally as one of the locomotives and innovators of the current generation. Agnès has vines in Cotes de Beaune and Hautes Cotes de Beaune in appellations Bourgogne Aligoté, Bourgogne Chardonnay, Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Hautes Cotes de Beaune white and red, Auxey-Duresses, Pommard, Chassagne-Montrachet, and Saint Aubin.
