Henri Prudhon et Fils

Sons Vincent, more talkative, and Philippe, less talkative, have taken the reins at this long-time Tanners supplier from Gérard, their father, who must have now done one of the longest mayoral stints in France! The estate was founded by Gérard’s father Henri, born in 1921; however the family has been in the village since the 17th century. 

Their home is in Saint-Aubin, as are most of their 15 ha of vines, although Gérard has overseen expansion into nearby Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet. The Prudhons’ aim is to ‘develop rather than manufacture’ wine through careful tending of densely planted vineyards. Some of the vines are more than 80 years old and they use minimal treatments, belonging to a sustainable viticulture group based in Dijon. The village of Saint-Aubin is off the beaten track, being on the road to La Rochepot, but nowhere else in particular, so mercifully the wines tend to be good value. Every year we taste through their whole range of Saint-Aubin wines and invariably prefer the red premier cru Les Frionnes which has a particularly good sunny south-east orientation, as well as the richness of the white En Remilly which is from the reverse slope of Chevalier-Montrachet grand cru.
