Jacques Prieur, Bourgogne 1er Cru, 2014

This 2014 Jacques Prieur Bourgogne 1er Cru, a Pinot Noir from the heart of the Côte de Beaune in Burgundy, France, boasts a striking ruby red color. The nose is precise, offering a charming bouquet of ripe fruit notes. On the palate, this wine is savory, presenting fresh fruit flavors that are underscored by dense, fresh, sharp, and spicy tannins.

The year 2014 was an interesting one for wine production in this region. The vines began their growth cycle in late March, thanks to a mild, damp winter and a hot, dry spring. However, a devastating hailstorm in late June significantly impacted the vineyards. Despite this, the long-awaited arrival of summer in September allowed the grapes to reach their desired maturity. The Pinot Noir grapes required rigorous sorting and careful selection of the optimal harvest date. Harvesting began on 16th September, resulting in a wine that is both fruity and delicate.

The grapes for this wine were grown on a 1.17-hectare plot overlooking the city of Beaune. The soil in this vineyard is clay-limestone, with a predominance of Grèves (small pebbles) and sand. The silica in the sand stores the sun's warmth, an important factor in ripening the grapes. This soil composition contributes to the elegance and fruitiness of the wine.

The winemaking process involved handpicking the grapes into small crates, followed by sorting and total destemming. The wine was left on the skins for 18 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats, with the cap being punched down twice a day during alcoholic fermentation. This wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation and was aged entirely in oak barrels for a duration of 16 months.

This 2014 Jacques Prieur Bourgogne 1er Cru, with its 13% alcohol level, has been highly rated by wine experts, earning 91 points from Robert Parker, and 90 points from both Decanter and Wine Enthusiast.
