Terroir: This 6 acre walled vineyard in the heart of Meursault is a monopole for Domaine Jacques Prieur. The vineyard sits in a rather flat position with rich clay soils covering what was once a riverbed.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 20 days prior to racking. The wine ages for 12 months of in oak barrels deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.
The 2008 is lush and fragrant of the nose with a palate of ripe cherry, sweet spice followed by elegant tannins on the soft finish.

"A ripe style, featuring black cherry and black currant flavors accented by mineral. there's a nice balance here between flesh and structure with a long aftertaste."
Score: 88 PointsBurghound Author: Allen Meadows
"A relatively restrained red berry fruit and warm earth nose leads to equally earthy, complex and round flavors that possess good intensity and fine precision on the nicely lingering finish that also evidences a touch of wood that should have no problem being integrated in the next year or so."
