ABOUT THE WINE
Vincent Prunier has come a long way since 1988, when he had only 2 hectares to work with; 30 years later he now has 13 hectares in Auxey-Duresses, Saint Romain, Meursault, Chassagne, Puligny and Saint Aubin. By the end of the 1990s his estate had already begun earning a reputation for excellent quality and consistency, derived from hard work in the vineyard and carefully controlled yields.

TASTING NOTES
Spice notes are entwined into the aromas of this deeply-coloured, red-fruit dominated wine. The palate adds a hint of earthy complexity, with ripe tannin and impressive approachability. Short-term ageing would be of benefit here, but this is already a supple, complex delight. From the Chanlins Bas vineyard on the border with Volnay - which goes some way to explain the delicacy of this wine.

FOOD PAIRING
More robust that the villages-wine from the same producer, this can stand up to traditional duck-dishes, a confit, perhaps, with an earthy cassoulet.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Production from this domaine was down by 60% in this frost and hail-stricken vintage; only 600 bottles of this 1er Cru were produced - hence the lack of vineyard designation on the label: the estate felt it was not worth printing new labels for so few bottles.
