(0) No Reviews yet


Vincent Dureuil is one of the hardest-working and most capable vignerons in the Côte Chalonnaise, and it shows in wines like this, which offer just as much intensity and richness as their more famous neighbors further north in Puligny and Chassagne. The smart money is on this beauty made from nearly 100-year-old vines, stacked to the gills with opulent, creamy Chardonnay fruit, toasty lees, verbena, honey, and butter. Give it a 10-year rest in the cellar and prepare to win any blind tasting challenge!

Details

The walls of the Dureuil (doo-roy) cellar look like something out of a B-grade horror movie, as if someone has sprayed them down with fake cobwebs. It's frigid, damp, musty and - truth be told - a little creepy. The ancient stone cavern seems like a science experiment gone wrong, and yet it echoes one of the great mysteries of Burgundy: how such precise, pure, focused white wines can come to life in such an environment.

Vincent Dureuil left us baffled yet again at this seemingly impossible dichotomy, and his lineup was one of the true highlights of last spring's buying trip. We literally bought every bottle we were offered, something we have rarely ever done. Alas, despite our offer to completely clean out his cellar, we didn't get nearly as much as we were prepared to secure. These are quite simply among the most compelling and delicious Chardonnays we tried in all of Burgundy. To miss them would be a mistake.
