2019 Domaine Jacques Prieur
Beaune Champs - Pimont 1er Cru
The signature expressive bouquet shines bright in 2019 with touches of almond and orange blossom, a hint of lemon curd developing with aeration. The well-balanced palate offers crisp acidity, more tension than Prieur’s other Beaune premier crus and a racy, lightly spiced finish.
The 5.6 acre Domaine Jacques Prieur parcel of 1er Cru Champ-Pimont sits on the slope overlooking the town of Beaune just west of the village. The vineyard faces due east and produces both red and white wines of superior quality. The soils range from clay based in the lower slopes to mineral rich (iron) gravel soils further up the the slope.
