    The wine

    Le domaine d'Auvenay ne dispose que de 3,87 hectares de vignes conduits en biodynamie et très bien sélectionnés avec des parcelles situées sur deux grands crus en Côte de Nuits et sur les grands terroirs à blanc de la Côte de Beaune.
    Ce puligny-montrachet Les Enseignères se révèle dans une robe dorée lumineuse. Son nez dévoile des parfums de pêche blanche, de fleur de vigne, de citron et d'amande fraîche. La bouche est ample, à la fois dotée d'une pureté incroyable et d'une grande richesse aromatique. Retenons ainsi de la texture et de la finesse pour ce puligny-montrachet élégant et raffiné.
    Il sera le compagnon idéal d'une blanquette de la mer, d'un cabillaud grillé au romarin ou, tout simplement, d'un fromage de chèvre affiné.

    Information about domain Domaine d'Auvenay

    The Domaine d'Auvenay belongs to the charismatic Lalou Bize-Leroy, who is also at the head of the less famous Leroy domain in Meursault. Its Chardonnays are noted to be the best in the world and their prices reflect this success. Madame Bize-Leroy, an energetic lady in her seventies, is also a fervent subscriber of biodynamics. She is Henri Leroy's daughter, the founder of the Leroy winemerchants, who bought half of the DRC (Domaine de la Roumanée Conti) in 1942 . In 1950s, she took over Maison Leroy, which had an impressive stock of vintage wines. In 1974 she took over from her father and became the joint manager of the DRC with her cousin Aubert de Villaine. She had to step down from this position in 1992, but still owns 25% of the shares. While building up the Leroy domain with other quality parcels, she purchased a farm at Saint-Romain that was to become the Domaine d'Auvenay. Included under this name are also the parcels inherited from her father, which were bought between 1989 and 1995.
