Auxey-Duresses La Caine, Henri Villamont. Blanc. Burgundy


Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-LèsBeaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer, which include some particularly well-sited vineyards. This vineyard is, as the name suggests, high up the slope. It occupies a north-facing vantage point adjacent to well-known Meursault Les Vireuils
