90-92 Points -Vinous

"The 2017 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru, a blend of two vineyards and, unlike 2015 and 2016, completely de-stemmed, has a deeper, slightly blacker nose than the Village Cru, certainly displaying more mineralité at this primordial stage. The well-defined palate is taut and linear, displaying impressive backbone considering the appellation in question. This is a great Auxey-Duresses, full of tension and vigor, offering lovely blackberry, black olive and saline notes toward the finish. Don't overlook this gem from Comte Armand." -NM 10/2018

“Comte Armand's premier cru blend comes from two sites - Les Bréterins and Bas des Duresses - which are combined in more or less equal proportions to produce this sturdy, firm, serious Auxey red. It's sappy and structured with well-integrated 20% new wood." -TA 10/2018
