In 1988, Alain and Sophie Meunier took over the domaine at Premeaux-Prissey close to Nuits-Saint-Georges, which had previously belonged to Sophie’s father. They had begun work with the principal that all wines should begin with the vines. Shortly after, Alain took a viticulture course at the Young Winegrowers Group in Beaune.
Alain maintains and employs traditional techniques; although adopting modern equipment that enables him to control the fermentation and maturation with more precision. There is a large range of wines produced here, and one always needs time to taste through the whole range during a visit to the cellars. Happily, the wines are always very enjoyable, richly-fruited and silky in texture.
