Intensity

On a vast, slightly sloping plain of iron-rich limestone soil, the Meursault appellation does not produce Grands Crus but very high-quality Premiers Crus. Meursault-Perrières is the largest and finest Meursault Premier Cru. It produces a wine that is exceptionally rich and complex. During the ageing process, it combines the complexity and roundness of the Meursault terroir with the elegance and minerality of the Puligny-Montrachet area.

The Domaine Jacques Prieur is one of the most prestigious domaines in Burgundy. In fact, it is the only one to possess vines in the five iconic appellations of Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot, Corton Charlemagne and Montrachet. It has been in the hands of the Labruyère family (Clos du Moulin in Moulin-à-Vent and Château Rouget in Pomerol) since 2007, having bought Antonin Rodet's shares, controlling 70%. The remaining 30% still belongs to the Prior family’s heirs. Jean-Pierre Labruyère has been appointed manager. Half of the distribution is handled by Antonin Rodet, and the other half by the estate itself.
