Tasting notes for the Montrachet Grand Cru 2017 - Domaine Jacques Prieur

  • EYE: This Montrachet reveals itself in the glass with a bright and deep golden yellow robe. Its rich and radiant color is a sign of excellence.
  • NOSE: It's a complex wine that exudes intense aromas of white-fleshed fruits, such as pear, apple, peach, and apricot. These fruity notes are accompanied by delicate hints of roasted hazelnut, fresh butter, and vanilla, creating remarkable olfactory depth.
  • MOUTH: The attack is quite generous, enveloping the palate with a very pleasant velvety texture. Flavors of stone fruits prevail, supported by notes of pastry and fresh butter. Perfectly balanced acidity brings a refreshing liveliness, while the long finish leaves a persistent impression in the mouth, subtly echoing the aromas previously detected on the nose.


In short: This Montrachet Grand Cru 2017 from the Domaine Jacques Prieur is an exceptionally high-quality white wine, a Burgundy gem with an extraordinary aging potential. By storing this bottle in your cellar, you'll be able to follow its evolution for a good twenty years. Over time, it will develop even more complexity while preserving its current balance and elegance. It pairs beautifully with numerous gourmet dishes such as lobster thermidor, sole meunière, or sautéed scallops.

A huge collection of Burgundy appellations


Claude Duvergey and Marie Taboureau founded the Meursault estate in 1865. At first a simple trading house, it gradually turned into a real wine estate in 1879, when the couple bought the "Propriété des Herbeux". Before Claude's death in 1920, the couple left everything they had (including the many grape vines they acquired throughout their lives) to Hélène Taboureau, who was Marie's niece, and her son: Jacques Prieur. The latter would become the future cofounder of the 1924 Paulée of Meursault (with the help of the Count Jules Lafon), as well as one of the founding members of the "Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin". He gave his name to the estate in 1965, giving birth to the current Domaine Jacques Prieur.

The main strength of the estate is the incredible selection of appellations available. Since its creation, the Domaine Jacques Prieur managed to accumulate a huge collection of parcels located on the Côte d'Or (which includes the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune). In total, 9 grands crus and 14 premiers crus can be found in the estate's catalog. Here, you can find big names such as Corton-Charlemagne, Montrachet, Chambertin, Volnay-Santenots, MusignyClos-de-Vougeot and many others.

In 1988, part of the estate was sold to an investment firm led by Jean-Pierre Labruyère, the man behind the Champion supermarkets. Nowadays, Daniel Godefroy is in charge of the 21 hectares vineyard. Thanks to his hard work and the acumen of Jean-Pierre, the terroir has become priority number one, which obviously led to a total conversion to organic winemaking. Today, the Domaine Jacques Prieur is owned by both the Labruyère family and the descendants of the Prieur family. It produces wines with a strong pedigree, containing the very soul of each Burgundy climate.
