2019 Auxey-Duresses Rouge 1er Cru Les Duresses Domaine Pascal Prunier-Bonheur En Primeur will be available to purchase. Please click here to email us your wish-list at [email protected].
The impossibly charming Pascal Prunier-Bonheur took over at the Domaine in 1983 as the fifth generation of this super quality-driven winegrowing family. With 6 hectares of vines over the Côte de Beaune, Pascal’s aim is to reflect the vineyard and allow the grapes to speak for themselves. Pure, elegant and showing wonderful energy across the range, our advice is to start following them now before others do. Pascal cut his holidays short to start the harvest on the 29th August. His opinion was to manage freshness and alcohol levels there was no other choice. Tasting his wines at this early stage he was, as with all the other top growers we visited, spot on.
“From 80-year-old vines the step up in concentration between this and the Village is immediate. Really lovely layers of balanced red and black fruits with that robust character from the appellation. This will offer great drinking for a decade.”
