Terroir: Domaine Jacques Prieur owns two acres of vines idealy located on the mid level slopes of the Grand Cru of Chambertin. Soil here is rich in organic material, mineral and clay and vines are old and very densely planted to encourage competition amongst the vines, limiting yields and producing fruit of great concentration.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, strictly sorted and destemmed. The must macerates in temperature controlled oak vats for 21 days. The wine ages for 17 months of in oak barrels deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.
"Good bright, full red. Pure nose offers raspberry, flowers, minerals and a whiff of game. Bright, intense and classically dry; tight today and very firmly built, offering excellent inner-mouth tension. In a distinctly refined style but very closed today. The savory, rising, solidly tannic finish shows subtle soil tones and a distinctly chewy quality. The crop level here was just 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to winemaker Nadine Gublin."
