Domaine Henri Prudhon Saint Aubin 1er Cru Sur Gamay 2018 - Burgundy
Bottle size: 750ml
The Prudhon family is one of the oldest in the village of Saint-Aubin. The vineyard has been passed down through the generations and today, the domaine covers 15 hectares of vineyards, spread out over Saint-Aubin and its neighbouring communes Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.
Located in the centre of the eastern, lower-lying sector of Saint-Aubin, ‘Sur Gamay’ is surrounded by premier crus. This sector is within striking distance of the fabled Le Montrachet, and it is where Saint-Aubin really shows off its ability to deliver mindboggling value. Prudhon owns three-quarters of a hectare here, with vines between 20 and 60 years of age.
Smoky hints of mineral reduction combine with those of essence of pear and citrus peel. There is a bit less volume but better precision to the attractively textured, succulent and very rich medium weight flavours that possess fine depth on the well-balanced finale.

Henri Prudhon born in Saint-Aubin in 1921, is at the origin of the estate.
Son of a winegrower, he married in 1945. That is how the HENRI PRUDHON estate was born, from the wine-producing heritage that each spouse inherited from previous generations.
Their second child Gérard, born in 1949, was fascinated by this wonderful craft and came back to work with his parents. In those days, the estate's harvest was mostly sold as grape must or wine to the region's wine merchants.
In the early 80s, Gérard wanted to develop bottling and direct marketing activities, well aware of the quality potential the estate wines possessed.
The operation grew with the acquisition of new plotsin Saint-Aubin, followed by Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet. More and more of the production was sold in bottles by the estate. Foreign markets took an interest in the Saint-Aubin appellation due to its proximity with the great Montrachet vintages and its reasonable prices. The HENRI PRUDHON estate quickly took advantage of this situation to establish a lasting presence on the English and American markets thanks to the work of well-known importers such as Neal Rosenthal in New York and Richards Walford in London.
