The People

In Burgundy, knowing who is who is crucial. When we met the charming Pascal Prunier, fifth generation of this super quality-driven winegrowing family, we were very impressed with his Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Pascal took over the estate in 1983. His aim is to reflect the vineyard and allow the grapes to speak for themselves.

The Vineyards

The estate spreads over 8 hectares in the Côte de Beaune across Saint-Romain towards Auxey-Duresses, Monthelie, Meursault and Pommard. Lesser-known appellations Auxey-Duresses is one to watch. Benefiting from excellent south and south-east orientation alongside a high proportion of limestone in the soils, the wines share similar characteristics to those from nearby Meursault and Volnay.
