(90-92 points) The 2014 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru comes from two blended parcels and sees around 20% new oak. It has more density than the village cru on the nose: blackberry and light stony scents, perhaps just a touch of oyster shell from the limestone soils. The palate is a delight: quite grippy in the mouth, good backbone here for an Auxey-Duresses with tightly-wound, sappy black fruit towards the finish. This is very well crafted. Ten barrels produced. - Neal Martin

Good full red. Aromas of dark cherry and menthol show some floral lift but come across as backward today. A step up in fruit intensity from the basic 2014 Auxey-Duresses bottling but still a bit lean compared to the 2015... Good full red. Aromas of dark cherry and menthol show some floral lift but come across as backward today. A step up in fruit intensity from the basic 2014 Auxey-Duresses bottling but still a bit lean compared to the 2015 version. Nicely delineated, saline wine with noteworthy calcaire energy and definition. The tannins arrive fairly early, giving the finish a slight dryness but very good shape. - tanzer

Here the nose is compositionally similar to that of the straight villages though with notably better layering to it. There is also more size, weight and power to the slightly finer medium weight flavors that culminate in... Here the nose is compositionally similar to that of the straight villages though with notably better layering to it. There is also more size, weight and power to the slightly finer medium weight flavors that culminate in a balanced, youthfully austere and delicious finish. This is really quite good because while there is a trace of rusticity it is noticeably less prominent. In a word, lovely.
