Domaine Henri Prudhon et Fils Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 'Les Perrieres'Regular price $54.99
'An attractively pure and expressive nose is comprised of green apple, pear, floral hints and mineral reduction scents. There is plenty of the hallmark minerality of a fine Perrières as well as good vibrancy on the utterly delicious and complex flavors that conclude in a clean, dry and mildly austere finish that is like rolling small stones around in the mouth. This too is good stuff.' - Burghound - 91 Points
'This half hectare parcel of 35 year old vines also sits to the northeast of the village slightly lower on the hill than the Sentier du Clou. The soil here is intensely stony. This was the very first of the 1er Cru whites to be bottled at the domaine in the early 1980s. The wines sees 12 months of elevage and about 20% of the barrels are new. The “Perrieres” is an ample wine with formidable complexity.
The domaine was established by Henri Prudhon who was born and raised as a vigneron in the village of Saint Aubin since his birth in 1921. He and his wife, Marguerite, combined forces upon their marriage in 1945, putting their small vineyard holdings together to form the Domaine Henri Prudhon. Monsieur Prudhon was a force in his village, serving for many years as the Mayor of this lovely hamlet set just to the west of Puligny and Chassagne along Route Nationale 6. Their son, Gerard, born in 1949, joined the family enterprise and it was Gerard who decided, in the early years of the 1980s, to begin bottling the wines of the estate rather than selling off the fruits of their labors to the local negociants. Gerard, too, maintains the family’s interest in the affairs of the village, being elected multiple times Mayor of Saint Aubin. Gerard’s two sons, Vincent and Philippe, have now taken over the direction of the domaine, working under the watchful eye of Gerard who has instilled in his children the deep respect for the finest of Burgundian traditions.' - Importer's Notes
