Rare propriétaire de la parcelle, le célèbre domaine Jacques Prieur signe un chambertin grand cru qui honore indéniablement la réputation de cette appellation chérie par Napoléon. More info
Chambertin, produced from vines planted on gentle slopes, is the grand seigneur of Burgundy wines and Napoleon's favourite. The soil contains limestone and is rich in ferruginous marls. Domaine Jacques Prieur is one of the few lucky vine owners in this prestigious grand cru. It is a dense wine with powerful tannins. It neds to be aged for at least 10 to 15 years to express its full potential.
The Domaine Jacques Prieur is one of the most prestigious domains in Burgundy. It is the only domain with vines in the five mythic appellations of Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot, Corton Charlemagne and Montrachet. Since 2007, 70% of the domain is owned by the Labruyère family (Clos du Moulin at Moulin-à-vent and Château Rouget at Pommerol), who bought Antonin Rodet's shares. Jean-Pierre Labruyère is the manager. The other 30% is still owned by the Prieur heirs. Half of the distribution is taken care of by Antonin Rodet and the other half by the domain. 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. It is the only domain with vines in the five biggest iconic appellations of Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot, Corton Charlemagne and Montrachet.
