Domaine Henri Prudhon

About the producer

The Prudhon family is one of the oldest in the village of Saint-Aubin. The vineyard has been passed down through the generations and today the domaine covers 15ha of vineyards, spread out over Saint-Aubin and its neighbouring communes Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. The vineyards are split equally between red and white grapes (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Aligoté). The whole family is involved in the business. Gerard took over the reins from his father, having joined him in 1970, with his wife Bernadette and their two children, Vincent and Philippe, who run the estate today. Vincent joined his parents after completing a degree in business studies in 1997 whilst Philippe, a qualified oenologist, started working at the domaine in 2001.
  • Sustainable


The vines are tended in a wholly traditional manner with the prime concern being to determine exactly what they need whilst respecting their natural environment. It follows on that controlling the yields and practising natural viticulture are a prerequisite for the expression of terroir.


The whites are pressed as soon as they reach the winery. The must obtained from this is then placed in a large vats for 24 hours to settle. The wines are then fermented in oak barrels with a small proportion new oak (between 25% and 35%, depending on the site). A slow malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel and frequent bâttonnage is employed to add texture and richness. The reds are destemmed and fermented in large oak vats with twice daily punch downs and pump overs. After fermentation, the red wines are aged in oak barrels for 10 to 18 months before bottling.
