Terroir: 1er Cru Champans is one of the larger 1er Cru vineyards in the village of Volnay. The vineyard sits just west of the village on a rather steep portion of the hill and sees optimal exposure to the sun thoughout the growing season. Domaine Jacques Prieur owns a bit less than 1 acres on the upper slope of the vineyard.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested, strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 19 days prior to fermentation. The wine ages for a total of 17 months in oak barrels deep in the cellars of Domaine Jacques Prieur.
