The commune of Auxey Duresses is situated in the centre of the Côte de Beaune between Monthélie to the North and Meursault to the South. The production is partly red and partly white wines.

The soils of the commune are made up of marl and chalk for the area producing white wines and clay and chalk for the red wine areas.

This wine is fermented in wooden barrels like all the Louis Jadot white wines, and then aged in barrels for 12-14 months before bottling.

Auxey Duresses Blanc has a nice limpid gold-green colour and develops aromas of pippin apple and fresh almonds. The wine will perfectly match roasted fish, charcuterie when young ; with fish or poultry in a cream sauce when the wine has been aged.

Auxey Duresses can be enjoyed when young but it is perfectly capable of ageing for 10 years, depending on the vintage and conditions of storage.
