Domaine d’Auvenay is named after Lalou Bize-Leroy’s home, an old hunting lodge outside Saint-Romain which she shared with her husband Marcel until he passed away in 2004. Bize-Leroy and her sister inherited the property from her father in 1980, and she eventually bought her sister’s share in 1990. The estate amounts to just under four hectares but covers 16 different appellations. This cuvée comes from the Domaine’s plot in the Premier Cru Les Folatières which was acquired in 1989. The 1997 vintage is at its peak now, evoking notes of lemon, grapefruit, honey, nuts and gunpowder.
