Description

Burgundy, France 

Domaine Henri Prudhon Saint-Aubin Blanc is a beautiful white wine gem from the Cote de Beaune, showing off the natural beauty of the Chardonnay grape. 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. 

The domain encompasses 14.5 hectares of vineyards and produces on the order of 90,000 bottles of wine annually, eighty-five percent of which is exported outside of France. The vineyards are managed with the objective of intervening as little as possible in the natural vegetative cycle. Farming is Lutte Raisonnée. 

This village-level white is sourced from multiple parcels that cover 2 2/3 hectare; the bulk of the vineyards are hillside situated and are found in the southwestern quadrant of the village. The age of the vines varies from 15 to 65 years. The soil is clay and limestone and the exposition is south-southeast. No new oak is utilized on this cuvée and the élevage is about eight months long. 

Aromas of pear, lime, green apple and toasted almonds lead to a crisp palate filled with notes of citrus, apples, and minerals. A gorgeous Chardonnay, it offers a long, beautiful finish. 

Enjoy Henri Prudhon Saint-Aubin Blanc with steamers, grilled sausages, roast chicken, grilled halibut, lobster salad and cheeses—chèvre, Beaufort, Comté and Emmental.
