Agnès Paquet 2016 – Auxey-Duresses

Agnès Paquet 2016 – Auxey-Duresses

The nose is fruity, racy and offers minerality as well as a very slight power. It reveals notes of quince, citrus and small notes of ripe tangerine associated with touches of pink lychee, rose as well as very discreet hints of white flowers (in the background), toasted and an imperceptible hint of beeswax. The palate is fruity, juicy, beautifully gourmand, well-built, racy and offers generosity, elegance, a small mineral frame, a fine grain, a very slight tension as well as a good guideline. On the palate this wine expresses notes of quince, crushed ripe brugnon and small notes of pear, quenette and yellow fruits associated with discreet touches of citrus, pink lychee as well as a discreet hint of flowers and an imperceptible hint of beeswax and almond / toasted oak. Good length.
