QUICK FACTSBurgundy, France
Beaune, Cote de Beaune
100% Pinot Noir
THE WINESourced from a tiny single vineyard (of which they own 100%) just west of the city of Beaune, this Pinot Noir is marvellously fruity, delicate and extraordinarily aromatic. Alongside the generously fruity nose of black cherry, there is a wonderful hit of violets and sweet spice from the use of 100% new oak.
On the palate you can expect more of the same but with a compelling liquorice complexity. Simply delicious!
THE WINEMAKERRising like a phoenix from the ashes, Domaine Jacques Prieur is going from strength to strength since the current oenologist Nadine Gublin joined the team in 1990. Since then she has been driving the Domaine into the higher echelons of quality through more meticulous fruit selection and sustainable viticulture.
Jacques Prieur are now considered one of the greatest Burgundy producers bottling some of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay available, especially if your preference is for a fuller bodied, riper style.
