Biodynamic. The Auxerre Corps de Garde is cropped from the lieux-dits of Belle Croix, Biaumont, Gondonne, Chaussan and Gueules de Loup, as well as a selection of parcels too small to successfully vinify separately. Across these sites the vine age averages 35 to 40 years and the soils are a mix of both Portlandian and Kimmeridgian limestone. The wine is raised in barrel (including some 500-litre demi muid), with a portion being new. The name comes from the family’s 14th century guardhouse and cellar that was probably used as a hideout when the village was under attack in the medieval period. It’s a cool, fresh and mineral white Burgundy, with pithy citrus, mouthwatering salinity and wispy reduction. Great length and drive too, leading to a complex and tapered close.
