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 2012 Meursault Clos de Mazeray comes from the Pinot Noir vines in the monopole. It has a ripe dark cherry and blueberry-scented bouquet quite precocious and Santenots in style, however, it needs more focus. The palate is ripe and rounded on the entry with clean and pure red and black fruit, fine structure and finer tannins than I expected, lending the finish a certain femininity. This should be delicious once bottled and perfect for early drinking."
