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.
"From a small parcel of 0.3 hectares, the Beaune Clos de la Feguine Blanc was affected by hail and needed a lot of selection, which resulted in four barrels (one of them new.) It has an intense, quite chalky bouquet, with hints of lemon curd in the background. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, well-integrated oak, harmonious and elevated on the finish, with a dash of spice. There's a little gas to dissipate before bottling. but I think this will turn out just fine."
