RATINGS

94The Wine Advocate

Velvety-textured, medium to full-bodied, broad, muscular, yet refined and noble, it is stunning to drink today, and yet should evolve magnificently over the course of the next dozen or so years.

PRODUCER

Domaine Jacques Prieur

Domaine Jacques Prieur is in Meursault, Burgundy. The estate owns or leases a total of 50 acres, including excellent parcels in Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes, Musigny, Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Beze. The estate is owned by the Prieur family and Antonin Rodet. The estate makes Grand Cru and Premier Cru red and white Burgundy.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Le Chambertin

Chambertin is a 32.5 acre Grand Cru vineyard in the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. More than 25 proprietors own parcels, and some parcels are as small as about 50 square yards. The famous vineyard gets its name from a 7th century peasant, Monsieur Bertin. The name is assumed to come from the phrase “champ Bertin,” or Bertin’s field. Chambertin has an altitude that varies from 275 to 300 meters and is tucked under the Montagne de la Combe-Grisard, sheltering the site from strong winds. The soil is limestone, though there is also clay and gravel. Principal proprietors by acreage owned are Armand Rousseau, 5.38 acres; Jean and Jean-Louis Trapet, 4.75 acres; and Rossignol-Trapet, 4 acres.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
