“We were so enamored with the 2014 ‘Sur le Sentier du Clou’ Premier Cru from Vincent Prunier, we decided to bring in another premier cru, ‘Les Frionnes’. For those of you who missed our previous offer from this producer, Vincent Prunier is a small, relatively unknown producer in Burgundy that reminds me of one of my favorite producers, Pierre Yves Colin Morey (although much easier on the wallet). If you are a white Burgundy lover like myself, these wines are for you! Both wines have a nice reductive note on the nose like fresh popcorn, but ‘Les Frionnes’ has a crisp floral note along with lean minerality. A fresh, clean palate with a long, refreshing finish. Pick up both to contrast and compare!” –Jim Knight, The Wine House

“Among growers, a little-known yet superb producer is young Vincent Prunier in Auxey-Duresses. Many Burgundy villages see multiple estates sharing a common last name. Pruniers abound in Auxey, and at least half a dozen estates share the name. So first names count. Vincent Prunier works in a small winery behind his modest home. His winemaking is ideal: fresh, pure, free of extraneous oakiness and concentrated. Supplies are limited, but because he's largely unheralded, prices are reasonable.” –Matt Kramer, Los Angeles Times

“For lovers of classic white Burgundies, 2014 is clearly a vintage to buy. Not only is quality unusually consistent, but the 2015s will be even more expensive and, as much as I like the best wines, they will probably be of less interest to connoisseurs. The 2016s may be more expensive still, as the potential size of the crop was sharply cut by the disastrous frost and hail this spring. Grape growers had to work as hard as ever in the vines this summer, but for less of a pay-off in quantity. And the ultimate quality of the 2016s is unlikely to be as consistent as that of the ‘14s—or even the ‘15s.” –Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
2014 Vincent Prunier Saint-Aubin "Les Frionnes" 1er Cru
Tasting Notes: Great aromatics of mineral, white flowers and lemon, balanced with a pleasant reduction note of freshly popped popcorn. A pleasant texture on the palate that is clean and fresh with a nice weight in the mid-palate and a mineral, crisp, refreshing long finish. Jim Knight, Wine House
