Terroir: Domaine Jacques Prieur owns about 3/4 of an acre of 1er Cru Meursault Perrieres. The soils of this east facing slope are well drained consisting mainly of a stony mixture of limestone, sand and clay.
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 19 months of in oak barrels deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.
"Picked October 2, without recourse to chaptalization, the 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres has a refined bouquet with scents of dried honey, almond and smoke, although I would like to see more stoniness develop by the time of bottling. The palate is well balanced and quite powerful on the entry. Great depth here, although it needs more tension and race toward the finish. There is potential here, but it needs to show a little more breeding by the time of bottling."
