Terroir: Domaine Jacques Prieur's 3.7 acre plot of Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes sits with an ideal southeast facing exposure. The soil is primarily of clay and limestone with average draining that leads to highly ripe grapes.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 12-14 hours prior to fermentation. The wine ages for a total of 16 months in oak barrels deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.
" Bright, pale yellow with green highlights. Captivating aromas of fresh peach, white flowers and hazelnut. At once chewy and smooth, with intense stone fruit flavors complemented by minerals and vanilla. This very promising wine will need some time to absorb its pronounced acidity"
"Here the nose is slightly riper with its elegant and pure mlange of yellow orchard fruit and pear liqueur aromas that precede the palate staining medium-bodied flavors that possess a really lovely vibrancy due to the ample underlying tension. Somewhat unusually for Combettes, this is very, very dry though again not strict or unduly austere on the delicious and sappy finish."
