The estate

Located in the famous village
of Meursault, Domaine Jacques Prieur owns Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines on
the best terroirs of Burgundy. From Montrachet to Chambertin, including Corton,
Echézeaux, Musigny and many others, the estate encompasses 23 of Burgundy’s
most mythical appellations.

All our wines are either Grand
Cru or Premier Cru - except Meursault Clos de Mazeray, one of our 3 Monopoles.

The winery is run by an
experimented trio: Nadine Gublin, oenologist and technical director, Edouard
Labruyère, managing director, and Martin Prieur, brand ambassador. Together
with an expert team, they are dedicated to handcraft outstanding wines and to
entrench the reputation of Domaine Jacques Prieur in the elite of Burgundy.

the vineyard

Settled in Meursault since the 19th century, Domaine Jacques Prieur today comprised 21 hectares (52 acres) of
vineyards (11ha/27ac in Pinot Noir and 10ha/25ac in Chardonnay).

The estate owns almost one third of all
Burgundian Grands Crus Appellations: Montrachet,
Chevalier-Montrachet, Corton-Charlemagne, Corton-Bressandes, Echézeaux, Clos
Vougeot, Musigny, Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze.

14 Premiers Crus complete this collection: Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes,
Meursault Perrières, Meursault Charmes, Meursault Santenots, Volnay Clos des
Santenots (Monopole), Volnay Champans, Pommard Les Charmots, Beaune
Champs Pimont (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir), Beaune Clos de la Féguine (Monopole, Chardonnay
& Pinot Noir), Beaune Grèves (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir) and
Chambolle-Musigny Combe d'Orveau.

Finally the winery also possesses 1 iconic Village Appellation:
Meursault Clos de Mazeray (Monopole).

Led by the vineyard manager, the estate has been following sustained
farming methods for many years: inputs have been dramatically reduced, soils
tillage has replaced chemical treatments, some tasks respect moon
calendar, etc.

The fierce will of the Labruyère Family to bequeath healthy terroirs to future
generations and the respect of the unique identity of each parcel enforced
the adoption of this "haute-couture"

The vintage

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru is a wine appellation located in the Côte de Nuits region of Burgundy, France. It is considered one of the most prestigious Grand Cru vineyards in the region, producing some of the finest Pinot Noir wines in the world.

2017 Omnipresent Sun!

The exceptional warm weather and the sunlight in March and in the first half of April gave way to a very quick development of the vine. The decrease in temperature in the end of April and minor frost episodes did not impact our vineyards like in 2016.

With constantly high temperatures, the growth cycle of the vine during the phase of vegetation was fulgurating (early and rapid flowering at the end of May - beginning of June and "flash" véraison has finished by 10th August).

The canicular weather in end of August intersected with occasional rains has accelerated the maturation of grapes and placed 2017 vintage among the earliest since the beginning of the years 2000.

The harvest at Domaine Jacque Prieur began on 29th August.
