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.
Beautiful luminous green gold with scintillating silver reflections. Toasted aromas and alluring dried fruits and citrus notes on the nose. On the palate, the wine is fresh, energetic, sharp and crusty with very salivating anise flavor. Beautiful sapidity with generous and digestible finish.
