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.

"A rich version, filled with peace, apple and grapefruit flavors, accented by spice notes. The vibrant acidity keeps this defined and fuels the long, spice-tinged finish. Drink now through 2022."
There is also a touch of the exotic here as well as the spiced pear, apple, grapefruit and mango aromas that precede the juicy and opulent medium full-bodied flavors that possess excellent volume and mid-palate concentration. There is a very round mouth feel to the explosively long and intense finish. Like the Perrires this is a textbook example of the appellation.
