    Cuvée presentation

    Famed since the end of the 18th century, the very special nature of the Montrachet vineyard contributes to its stature as the greatest white wine in the world. As always, it is the poverty of its terroir, located on a barren hill of pebbles and clay (Montrachet meaning "bald mountain" in ancient French) that generates a wine of such unusual complexity and richness. Straddling the communes of Puligny and Chassagne, the vineyard is today divided between 17 owners. With its beautiful golden visual aspect, the aromas of this rich, unctuous wine literally coat the palate with notes of yellow and white fruit, spices and cream. The nose is dense, rich and complex, with aromas of fresh mint, eucalyptus, truffles and pastry. The palate is intense and powerful, with mineral, roasted, toasted and menthol flavours. The aromatic persistence, the mouthfeel and heat at the end of the palate are incomparable. A wine of intense concentration, requiring many years to reach perfection. When at its peak, Jacques Prieur's Montrachet develops an unparalleled aromatic richness and complexity. This wine can be aged for 10 years or more.

The wines are vinified by Nadine Gublin since 1990, renowned oenologist for her work, the precision and the quality of her wines. It is now one of the most prestigious from Burgundy.
