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 Cote 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.
“Restrained but ripe citrus fruit notes and lovely saline mineral finish. From old vines on gravel soils running alongside the Meursault appellation. Fermented in oak 5% of which is new. The addition of new oak is a first at this Domaine for this wine, as Pascal felt the power of the vintage could handle it. The result is impressive.”
