Prunier Auxey-Duresses blanc 18

$45

Michel Prunier and his daughter Estelle craft excellent, traditional white and red Burgundies in their underrated down of Auxey-Duresses. Their reds are punchy and bright, with refreshing mouthfeels. Their whites are smooth, floral, and round, with excellent depth and beautifully layered expressions.

The regular cuvée of Auxey-Duresses blanc has a lovely, expressive nose in which a touch of oak blends beautifully with the Chardonnay fruit. There’s enough freshness to carry the wine for some time, and while there’s maybe not quite as much gras (“fat”) as in a Meursault, the wine is plenty ripe and round, with good persistence on the palate.
