Domaine Vincent Prunier
Auxey-Duresses, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy
Vincent Punier created his Domain in 1988 when he inherited 2 ha from his parents. Today, this property is comprised of 13 hectares of vines located on prestigious hillsides such as Auxey-Duresses, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin.
The wines are hand-harvested and vinified in a very classic, traditional manner, and aged in used French oak barriques for about a year before bottling. Vincent has also long advocated ploughing his vineyards to encourage deeper roots which in turn enables vines to capture the complexity and terroir of each site.
Saint-Aubin as an appellation to watch, because of its steeper, higher-altitude vineyards and cooler temperatures in relation to Chassagne and Puligny; the thinking is that the appellation is better-situated to weather rising global temperatures.
