Meursault 1er Cru Santenots 2005

Domaine Jacques Prieur

Terroir: Meursault 1er Cru Santenots sits on the northern boundary of the Meursault appellation. Domaine Jacques Prieur owns approximately 1/2 an acre of this vineyard. This is an extremely unique vineyard as producers are able to produce both white Meursault 1er Cru or red Volnay 1er Cru from the same parcel. The vines face almost due east and the soil is heavy in nature, primarily clay and silt.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 12 hours prior to fermentation. The wine ages for 17 months of in oak barrels deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.
