Detailed description

The Auxerre vineyards (pronounced “Ausserre”), lying on either side of the river Yonne, boast ancient lineage, thanks to the abbey of Saint-Germain and a proximity to Paris.

Today they are very much alive. In 1993, wines from the communes of Auxerre, Vaux, Champs-sur-Yonne, Augy, Quenne, Saint-Brisle- Vineux and Vincelottes were granted the right to add a local identifier to the appellation Régionale Bourgogne.

In any case, these vineyards continue to have their own distinct personality.

These vineyards form part of Bourgogne’s “golden gate”, lying as they do on Jurassic limestones (Kimmeridgian and Portlandian).

Appellation Régionale of the Auxerrois region (Yonne).
The name CÔTES D’AUXERRE can only be added to the word BOURGOGNE for red, white and rosé wines produced within the defined area of the appellation.

Oenologues de France prix d'excellence
Decanter Panel 89 tasting: A muted and toasty nose, the fruit needs coaxing out a bit. There is a charming, piquant attack that is assertive and looking for harmony
