I'm a huge fan of Michelin. I've had (and installed) several other brands on my vehicles over the years...Goodyear, Dunlop, BF Goodrich, Kumho, Hankook, Firestone, etc. I won't buy anything but Michelin now. You almost always get what you pay for with Michelin. With the exception of the Primacy MXV4s that wore out fairly quickly on our Sienna(which we got 50% mileage credit on), I've had better tread life, handling, traction and a smooth ride for the life of the tire.
Personally, I'm not all that crazy about the Energy Saver, but it has more to do with the speed rating/handling than anything. You got good mileage out of them so you can't go wrong if you were happy with them.
In your size, I prefer the Premier. I'm a spirited driver so I'm hard on tires. It's a step up in speed rating, and handling and traction all around. It's still a great riding tire, but there's a slight chance it may not ride quite as softly as the Energy Saver. The premier has a higher treadwear rating so it should last a little longer. I can tell you when it comes to Michelins, you'll be splitting hairs when it comes to ride quality so I don't think you'll notice a difference.
