Jacques Prieur

Instituted at Meursault since the 19th century, Domaine Jacques Prieur boasts one of the finest collections of Grands Crus and Premiers Crus in existence. Its 21 hectares of vines (11ha Pinot Noir and 10ha Chardonnay) include many prestigious terroirs, such as Grands Crus Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Corton-Bressandes, Echézeaux, Clos Vougeot, Musigny, Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze. That's one third of the Appellations Grands Crus of Bourgogne.

Fourteen Premiers Crus complete this wonderful collection spread over Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. Nine grands crus, fourteen premiers crus, three crus monopoles, a veritable string of pearls. 

Today at the helm of this jewel of the Bourgogne, the Labruyère Family, also owners of Château Rouget in Pomerol and Domaine Labruyère in Moulin-à-Vent, work daily to make the most of this prestigious heritage. She is supported by Martin Prieur, grandson of Jacques Prieur, who has worked and lived with his family on the property since 1990. Now in charge, along with Edouard Labruyère, of marketing the wines of Domaine, Martin Prieur represents the link between past and present, for no one knows the history of Domaine and its vines as well as he does. Under the guidance of Daniel Godefroy, an experienced vineyard manager who knows each plot inside out, Domaine has been following a "viticulture raisonnée" approach for many years. Work in the winery and cellar is supervised by the excellent oenologist Nadine Gublin. An adept at reasoned and precise intervention in the winemaking process, she was notably awarded the title of Winemaker of the Year 1998 by the Revue du Vin de... See more ...

Description Domaine Jacques Prieur Musigny Grand Cru 2006.

Appellation Grand Cru from Côte de Nuits, Musigny is one of the largest terroirs of Bourgogne. It comprises just over ten hectares on a rocky, limestone terrace with a fairly steep slope, above Clos de Vougeot between Premier Cru Les Amoureuses and Les Echezeaux. Facing south-east, the appellation benefits from a confined, sunny microclimate, its thin, very stony soil reinforcing this impression of warmth. The Domaine Jacques Prieur owns a 0.77-hectare parcel here, which gives rise to this wonderful wine.  

After a scorching July, 2006 turned out to be a fine, very classic vintage. The grapes were harvested by hand, then sorted and totally destemmed. Vatting lasted 20 days in temperature-controlled wooden vats. Aging was 100% in new oak barrels for 19 months. 

The colour is a bright, semi-translucent red with amber edges. The highly perfumed nose energetically reveals lovely red fruit aromas mixed with pretty floral notes of roses and violets. A wonderful bouquet accompanied by earthy notes and undergrowth.  

On the palate, the sensation is pure and silky with supple tannins and remarkable acid balance. The whole is very harmonious with flavors of black cherry and redcurrant, hints of aromatic herbs and dried leaves. There's also a hint of compote, present in many of the vintage's great wines. The expression of terroir is very noticeable, with a vibrant minerality on the finish. Bold, rich and sumptuous on the palate. 

Drunk at 16°C in large red Bourgogne glasses, this wine would be the perfect match for pheasant with figs or partridge with wild mushrooms.
