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.
"The 2012 Beaune 1er Cru Clos de la Feguine is south facing monopole located high on the slope with more calcareous soils (planted with Chardonnay at the top and Pinot Noir towards the bottom.) It has a delicate, more understated bouquet compared to the Greves, with subtle stony scents developing in the glass. The palate is fresh and bright on the entry with notes of red apple, a hint of honey and a suggestion of almond towards the finish. This is a fine Beaune premier cru."
