Most of Agnès Paquet's vines lie in the Auxey-Duresses appellation, including a plot that has been in her family since the 1950s, and it is here that she is carving a reputation for consistently producing wine of value and quality.
Agnes Paquet's white has attracted favourable reviews in both Decanter Magazine and jancisrobinson.com in the last few years. The house style here is to let the wine express itself without too much intervention in the cellar: whole bunch pressing and no lees stirring in order to achieve wines with a linear structure.
"This young vigneronne based in the Hautes Côtes village of Meloisey is in organic conversion, and 2021 will be her first organic-certified vintage. Her 13 hectares are spread between the Hautes Côtes, Auxey-Duresses, Pommard, Chassagne, and Saint-Aubin. Red and whites alike benefit from a non-interventionist philosophy, and deliver intense, flavourful results in a modern style." Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 26th August 2021
