It is my belief that one can tell a lot about a wine producer, not from their expensive 1er crus but rather from their entry level wines. Henri Prudhon is a winemaker who makes a wide variety of wines – from bottles you can grab for a tenner to a Puligny-Montrachet at around £30. It’s a belter by the way!!

St. Aubin

St. Aubin

The domaine’s entry level white is the ‘Bourgogne’. This name on the label generally denotes a winemaker’s basic wine with the grapes being gathered from various parts of Burgundy, hence the wine’s name. Prudhon’s effort is a classy yet simplistic expression of Burgundian Chardonnay. A supple & fruity wine with no new oak, there are beautiful  citrus notes and minerals on the nose with a palate that provides great acidity and delicate fruit. – a perfect White Burgundy starter wine. The next step might be to try Henri Prudhon’s St. Aubin 1er Cru – great value for premier cru White Burgundy at around £20.
