About the wine

Vincent Prunier has come a long way since 1988, when he had only 2 hectares, just over 25 years later he now has 13 hectares in Auxey-Duresses, Saint Romain, Meursault, Chassagne, Puligny and Saint Aubin. By the end of the 1990s the quality was noticeable, this was achieved through working hard on the soils and reducing the yields.

TASTING NOTES

Golden colour. Nose of white flowers, grapefruit, fresh almond and apricot evolving towards hazelnuts and dried fruit. The mouth is rich with some peach and toasted notes. Finishing with minerality.

FOOD PAIRING

Pair with full flavoured fish like mackerel, salmon and white meats in a cream sauces.

FRIARWOOD SAYS

Saint Aubin borders both Chassagne- and Puligny-Montrachet, yet the best St-Aubins cost a fraction of the price.
