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.

"This is really quite pretty with a perfumed nose of raspberry and red currant that introduces energetic and vibrant soil and mineral-driven flavors that possess good precision on the ever-so-slightly edgy finish. This is a delicate effort of finesse."
