Description

Burgundy, France 

Domaine Henri Prudhon Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Rouges-Gorges is a beautiful red wine gem from the Cote de Beaune, showing off the natural beauty of the Pinot Noir 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. 

Prudhon Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Rouges-Gorges is produced from two separate parcels: one on a hillside above the hamlet of Gamay and the other from a parcel between Saint Aubin and Chassagne Montrachet. The average age of the vines is 50 years. A classic wine of this sector with compelling notes of animal and wild berries. The élevage is about 18 months before bottling; again, very little new oak is used. 

Enjoy Henri Prudhon Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Rouges-Gorges with grilled sausages, roast pork, rich vegetarian dishes, and cheeses—chèvre, Beaufort, Comté and Emmental.
