Beaune 1er Cru Greves Blanc 2015

Domaine Jacques Prieur

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.

    A whisper of petrol character can be found on the smoky aromas that are primarily composed of various white orchard fruit and a hint of citrus zest. There is good vibrancy and reasonable definition to the lightly stony middle weight flavors that culminate in a clean and moderately dry if not especially complex finish. This should drink well on the younger side.

    The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Greves Blanc has a light resinous, honeysuckle-scented bouquet that just needs to muster a little more intensity. The palate is juicy and ripe on the entry with grapefruit and Conference pear notes, quite saline in the mouth, and perhaps just missing the length that a cooler season might have bestowed. Enjoy this over the next 5-6 years.

    Grade: 88-90 Points
