Terroir: The 4.2 acre Domaine Jacques Prieur parcel of 1er Cru Greves sits on the slope overlooking the town of Beaune just west of the village. The vineyard faces southeast and produces both red and white wines of superior quality. Soils are made up primarily of small pebbles (Greves), sand and clay leading to a wine of great elegance.
Vinification: Grapeas are hand harvested strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 23 days prior to racking. The red and white Greves both undergo 100% malolactic fermentation and 16 months of aging in oak barrels.

Pale, bright yellow. Brisk aromas of lemon zest, anise and sea salt. Nicely balanced but tightly wound, with bright yellow fruit and spice flavors framed by firm acidity. The very dry, sappy, saline finish leaves the palate vibrating. There were significant hail losses here.
