2015 Exceptional sunshine!
The year 2015 profited from completely exceptional climatic conditions with surplus sunning, very weak pluviometry and very high temperatures in June and July. The strong luminosity and heat marked this year with accelerated vegetative cycle and certain stages such as flowering at the beginning of June and ripening at the beginning of August were fulgurating.
Harvests at Domaine Jacques Prieur started on 3rd September for Chardonnays and on 7th September for the Pinot Noirs.
2015 can be illustrated as an extremely early vintage and it stands next to 2003, 2007 and 2011.
Green gold with the scintillating silver reflections. Rich and complex with ripe white fruit flavors (pepper, banana), evolving with aeration into candied citrus and flint notes (chalk, stone).
The palate is smooth and crunchy at the same time with lemon and toast notes. Dense, energetic and digestible finish lingering through a generous sapidity.
