Beaune 1er Cru Cuvée Clos des Avaux 2015 Magnum
155th Hospices De Beaune Wine Auction on the 15th November 2015 - Beaune 1er Cru, Cuvée Clos des Avaux Hospices de Beaune 2015
This 1st Growth Beaune Cuvée is always a wine of good fruit, but requiring significant barrel- and bottle-ageing to bring it to softness and complex maturity. Colour is rich purple, the nose being powerful, ripe and complex. 1st impression on the palate is of full, rich fruitiness, continuing all the way to a beautifully gentle, refreshing finish. Long-fermented and macerated (23 days) this wine has personality and poise, with lovely balance.
