Maison Prosper Maufoux was founded in 1860, by Prosper Maufoux, a notary who left his job to create the eponymous wine house. Over the years, the family winery grew and became a world-renowned name. In 2010, the Piffaut Family, whose winegrowing roots in Burgundy go back over two hundred years, took over Maison Prosper Maufoux. The family then acquired the Chateau de Saint-Aubin and its exceptional vineyards and the Chateau is now the new home for Prosper Maufoux. The 9-hectare vineyard is located in the heart of the Cote de Beaune. Certified HVE level 3, Prosper Maufoux is passionate about sustainable cultivation; biodiversity is encouraged and environmental research takes place to truly understand the impact of cultivating these distinguished Burgundy terroirs. The most advanced techniques in sustainable viticulture are implemented to protect the future of these famous terroirs in the most respectful way.

The vineyard is located in the 1er Cru appellation of Saint-Aubin, under the chateau, nestled in the hollow of a small valley. The semi-continental microclimate benefits from the colluviums at the bottom of the valley, which ensures significant drainage of the vineyard. The winters are cold, and summers are generally dry, warm, and sunny. The tiny vineyard covers just 1.1 hectares and is situated at 280 meters elevation. The vines were planted in 1981 and in 1999 with a southerly orientation, where they benefit from maximum sun exposure and are trained according to the Guyot method. The vineyard is cultivated sustainably and is HVE certified. Research is being conducted to analyze the soil’s geology to measure the impact of the cultivation decisions made, on both the vine and resulting wine. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimum maturity.
