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.

Vines planted in the 1960s give this wine its great concentration. With its powerful fruits and dense tannins, it is well structured, with the hallmark bright fruits of the vintage along with acidity. The tannins are very present at the moment, and the wine will need long aging. Drink from 2024.
"The 2014 Chambertin Grand Cru amounts to just three barrels this year, one of them new, the other two from 2012. It has a "classic" quite refined bouquet with attractive floral scents coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, brambly black and red fruit, nicely judged acidity with a clean and precise finish. Not long term, but nicely crafted."
