Terroir: Domaine Jacques Prieur owns a small 1/2 acre parcel of 1er Cru of Clos de la Fèguine which is perched on a very steep portion of the south facing hillside. This vineyard sits on a former quarry and contains a light brown silty soil made up of gravelly clay and limestone. Ideal drainage.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 24 hours prior to fermentation. The wine ages for 17 months of in oak barrels deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.
A fine, light Chardonnay with very restrained oak. Apple, peach and citrus drive through to the finish where a touch of vanilla and smoke integrate.

"Touched by wood, the wine has fine acidity with bright white fruits and hints of yellow fruits to go with the mineral character as well as the delicious grapefruit edge."
"Discreet wood notes set off the dried rose petal, pear and stone aromas that marry into richer, fuller and more obviously mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess a seductive texture on the very dry, clean and saline suffused-finish. Lovely and understated."

"Pale yellow with green highlights. Minerals and spices on the nose. Distinctly rocky in the mouth, with density leavened by energy and grip. Nicely spicy, minerally wine with a light touch."
