Chateau Jacques Prieur 1995 Chambertin Grand Cru
It would be an understatement to claim that Domaine Jacques Prieurs vineyard holdings are great. The domaine is the only property in Burgundy to own vineyards in five of the regionŐs most famous Grand Cru vineyards: Le Montrachet, Le Corton, Les Echzeaux, Le Musigny and Le Chambertin.
Founded in 1956, today the domaine is owned by the charming, understated Edouard Labruyre. Pristine vineyards are impeccably maintained to produce fruit of exquisite quality. The winery and domaine have been undergoing renovation since the Labruyere family purchased the domaine and today the winery has facilities equal to the best in the world.
Each parcel is vinified separately to reveal its essential character. The winemaker is the remarkable, highly respected Nadine Gublin, named Winemaker of the Year in 1997 by the Revue du Vin de France, the country's leading wine journal.
