Chambertin Jacques Prieur 2017
Undoubtedly one of Prieur’s flagship wines, this is produced from a 0.49ha plot of the revered Chambertin Grand Cru. The fruit was hand-harvested and entirely destemmed, undergoing fermentation in open oak vats with moderate pigeage and maturation in oak barrels for 18 months. The 2017 is a broad-shouldered and youthfully firm release yet shows glimpses of beautiful aromatic complexity and subtle mineral depth. This is certainly one for the darker recesses of the cellar.
