Product Description:

"What Pascal Prunier manages to coax out of motley crew of relatively modest appellations, whether red or white, is absolutely spectacular. Pascal, who has the most endearing and impossibly wide grin, is the 5th generation in a family of vignerons. He decided to launch his own domaine with his wife, Christine Bonheur, in 1983, with a mere 3 hectares of rented vines. Today, the domaine comprises 8 hectares of vines, scattered throughout the Côte de Beaune, from Saint Romain to Beaune. Production is equal parts white and red wine, and the cellars are located on the road between Meursault and Auxey-Duresses. (He lives around the corner from Jean-Marc Roulot.) The whites beam with energy and the reds have a rather extraordinary Zen-like calm and great purity. Very lightly extracted, their attack is soft, delicately fruity, happy. It’s only when you start focusing on the back palate, especially in Auxey and Monthelie, where you notice the underpinnings of serious structure. Nothing is loud, though. It’s quite puzzling. And you just want to pour more and think about it again." -Importer
