Domaine Jacques Prieur Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru 2017
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
Here too there are notes of poached plum present on the nose of cassis, earth and underbrush. There is good energy and detail to the nicely rich middle weight flavors that flash more evident minerality on the youthfully austere, firm and dusty finish. Once again, this needs to add depth to merit the upper end of my projected range. - AM
Domaine Jacques Prieur is a relatively large Burgundy producer that makes both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from esteemed vineyard holdings across the Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. The history of the domaine began in the 1860s, with the marriage of Claude Duvergey and Marie Taboureau. They first established the wine and spirits merchant business, Duvergey-Taboureau House, before buying property in Meursault ??now the site of the modern Jacques Priuer daomine. Beginning in the late 1800s and continuing into the 20th Century, the family began investing in viticulture and purchasing vineyards, establishing vines in what have become some of the most sought after appellations in the Cote d'Or.
