Full description

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 one 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

2017 Sunshine all around!


The exceptional mildness and sunshine of March and the first two weeks of April favoured a very rapid development of the vines. The drop in temperatures at the end of April had no consequences and unlike 2016, the frost spared the vineyard.
With temperatures still high, the vine's development cycles during the vegetation phase were dazzling (early and rapid flowering at the end of May/beginning of June and "lightning" veraison, completed on 10 August).


With a scorching end to August interspersed with rainy spells, the grape ripening process accelerated and 2017 was one of the earliest vintages since the early 2000s.
The harvest began on 29 August at the estate.
