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.

Produced from vines mainly planted in the 1970s, this is a concentrated dark wine. Rich and ripe, it has powerful tannins mingled with beautifully perfumed fruits. The wine is dense and packed with floral fruitiness as well as fine, sweet tannins. Drink from 2025.
"The 2014 Musigny Grand Cru has a deep, dark color. The nose is very refined with very good mineralit coming through with aeration, slightly floral. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, a little grainy in texture, very harmonious and very classy -- among the best I have tasted. Not quite as sensual as say, Domaine de la Vougeraie, but perhaps even more tensile. This is an outstanding Musigny. "
