Those who decry the lack of access to fine Burgundy at palatable prices need look no further than Domaine Henri Prudhon in Saint-Aubin. While it is undeniably true that the prices of many wines from the most battled-after growers have reached the level of pure commodity, there are still areas of this hallowed region where one can find great Burgundy at affordable prices—villages like Saint-Aubin, with vineyards on a high slope, in a cool microclimate, mere paces away from grand cru turf.
We have the special privilege of working with the Prudhon family virtually from the first moment when they decided to bottle their wines rather than sell their grapes and/or wine to negociants. Our first vintage together was 1983 and we have worked in comfortable partnership ever since, neither missing a beat nor a vintage.
