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 12 hours to fermentation. The wine ages for 19 months of in oak barrels deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.
A touch lighter on the palate and fleshier than it's 1er Cru siblings, the 2009 is ripe and bursting with a combination of citrus, pineapple, toasty oak and mineral.
