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

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.
