Michel Prunier et Fille

This domaine is the epitome of the smaller grower in the lesser village, and in a world of stratospheric interest in more famous Burgundy wines, such growers are worth their weight in gold.

These Pruniers – and there are several – are to be found on the main road through Auxey-Duresses in a flower-filled courtyard, with a cosy tasting room decorated by medals won and foreign bottles drunk. Being of small stature, the Pruniers – father, Michel and daughter, Estelle – have no trouble with the perilously low lintel over the entrance to their cellars! Estelle joined her father in 2004 after her wine studies and work experience in Australia and Bordeaux. Michel himself studied at the viticultural college at Avize in the Champagne region and still has a love of making hand-riddled Crémant de Bourgogne. Michel has grown the estate to 12 ha from only 2 ha in 1986 and Estelle represents the fifth generation to make wine here. They have vineyard holdings – all worked sustainably – in Beaune, Meursault, Volnay, Pommard, Chorey-lès-Beaune but their pride and joy is their premier cru, Clos du Val, in Auxey-Duresses. The grapes from Bas de Duresses, Grands Champs and Climat du Val, are made into one 1er cru. “A wine should frankly express its terroir and vintage,” says Michel, whose wines also have a remarkable capacity to age.

About En Primeur

Lying Abroad/En Primeur/In Bond Wines

Wines offered ‘Lying Abroad’ or ‘En Primeur’ provide a good way to secure some of the most sought after wines at opening prices. In addition we ensure it is the cheapest way to buy favourite mid-priced wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône, so please ask us for our offers or check our website for latest reports. Prices are clearly marked in our sales literature and are exclusive of duty, shipping, marine insurance and VAT. Shipment of claret and Port normally takes place around 30 months after the vintage, burgundy and Rhône usually more quickly. A second invoice for the duty, shipping, marine insurance and VAT on the value of the wine is charged at the time of shipment - view current duty rates. There are no further charges for deliveries to a UK mainland home or work address. Your Lying Abroad purchases are covered under The Bunch Code of Practice which can be sent on request or viewed here.
