Domaine Jacques Prieur - Beaune 1er Cru Grèves Rouge 2017
Terroir: The 3 acre Domaine Jacques Prieur parcel of 1er Cru Grèves sits on the slope overlooking the town of Beaune just west of the village. The vineyard faces southeast and produces both red and white wines of superior quality. Soils are made up primarily of small pebbles (Grèves), sand and clay leading to a wine of great elegance.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested strictly sorted and destemmed. The must will sit on the skins for 23 days prior to racking. The red and white Grèves both undergo 100% malolactic fermentation and 16 months of aging in oak barrels.
Additional Details editLuminous ruby red. Generous showing floral, spicy and fruity notes at the same time (rose, clove and fresh cherry). Invigorating and dynamic with fruity-acidulous notes. Very digestible on the finish with structured, fresh and spicy tannins.
