Musigny Grand Cru 2011

Domaine Jacques Prieur

Terroir: Domaine Jacques Prieur owns just under two acres of Grand Cru Musigny. This is one of the greatest terroirs in the world for Pinot Noir. The 25-acre vineyard sits high on the hillside overlooking the larger Grand Cru of Clos de Vougeot in the village of Chambolle-Musigny. Soil composition is very thin and made primarily of small stones. Drainage here is optimal.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, strictly sorted and de-stemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 23 days prior to fermentation. The wine ages for a total of 16 months in oak barrels, located deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.

    "Good bright, full red. Subtly complex nose offers raspberry, minerals, fresh herbs, flowers, vanilla and sexy oak spices. Rich, pliant and fine-grained, with lovely lift and elegance to the intense fruit and floral flavors. In a distinctly delicate, airy style. The suave, savory finish displays insidious palate-staining persistence. This will go violety with time in bottle."
