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.
Healthy dark red. Still a trace of malic acidity blocking the nose but clearly very ripe. Broad, sweet and silky on the palate, with a raspberry flavor accented by a touch of herbs (the stems contribute elegance, notes Gublin). Offers lovely fruit and suave tannins, with nothing hard about it. Made from deep alluvial soil in the bottom of the clos.
