Domaine d’Auvenay is owned by Lalou Bize-Leroy, who also controls Maison Leroy , which in turn owns half of Domaine de La Romanée-Conti . Production here is tiny, though d’Auvenay is the producer of some of the finest Chardonnay available. The vineyard holdings are tiny: 0.16 hectares of Chevalier-Montrachet, 0.06 hectares of Criots-Batard-Montrachet, 0.27 hectares of Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières. The wines from this outstanding producer are very much worth seeking out: invariably expensive, they can be some of the very finest examples of white Burgundy.
As with the wines from Domaine Leroy, yields are tiny and the quality at an entirely new level. As well as the tiny quantities of white wines made, the domaine also has holdings in the Côte de Nuits: just over a quarter of a hectare of Bonnes Mares and the same of Mazis-Chambertin. These are some of the rarest wines made in Burgundy. The estate is farmed organically, and there are few white wines that can match the sheer intensity and energy of the white wines be they Meursault, Puligny or the grand crus.

‘DP’ shown against a price indicates that UK Duty has already been paid.
For UK and EU customers it means that VAT must be charged as the wine is no longer ‘In Bond’. It does not affect non-EU export orders.
What Are ‘En Primeur’ Wines?
‘En primeur’ wines, or wine ‘futures’ are those that are bought before the wine has been bottled and are still in the barrel. They are bought in bond – i.e. excluding duty and VAT. For many wines, buying ‘en primeur’ allows you to buy at a better price than buying after the wine has been bottled and shipped. The wine typically arrives in the UK one to three years after the harvest, therefore up to two years after you have made your purchase.
This wine has been flagged as less than 'perfect condition' (taking into consideration its age). The relevant indicators can include: lower content level, bin-soiled label, damaged cap etc. As a result, this is available at a discounted market price.
