Domaine Jacques Prieur - Beaune 1er Cru Champs-Pimont Rouge 2018

Overview

Terroir: The 5 acre Domaine Jacques Prieur parcel of 1er Cru Champ-Pimont sits on the slope overlooking the town of Beaune just west of the village. The vineyard faces due east and produces both red and white wines of superior quality. The soils range from clay based in the lower slopes to mineral rich (iron) gravel soils further up the the slope.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 24 hours prior to fermentation. The red and white Champ-Pimont both undergo 100% malolactic fermentation and 17 months of aging in oak barrels.

Additional Details edit

Dark and intense ruby red. Fine and precise with notes of dark berries (bilberry, blackberry), evolving with aeration into spicy and slightly leather/tobacco notes. Crunchy featuring dark berries and very slightly toasted notes on the mouth. Thick on the finish with dense, ripe and salivating tannins.

"The 2018 Beaune Champs Pimonts 1er Cru is de-stemmed and matured in 25% new oak. That wood is showing more conspicuously than in the other Beaune crus and will need time to be assimilated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, quite fleshy and forward. Lightly spiced red fruit appears toward the finish, which tapers in slightly (possibly closing down for the second winter). Good potential, though."
