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.
"The 2013 Meursault Clos de Mazeray was picked on October 4, raised 50% in barrels and 33 hectoliter foudres, undergoes no batonnage or chaptalization. It has a fragrant bouquet with touches of almond and linden that unfurls in the glass, but never becomes powerful. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity. It is not a complex Meursault, but there is a fine seam of minerality and peppery notes emerging toward the finish. Fine."
