JACQUES PRIEUR 2010 BEAUNE BLANC CHAMPS PIMONT 1ER CRU

BURGHOUND 89-91 POINTS - " A discreet if not invisible touch of wood frames airy and quite cool aromas of citrus, white flowers and almost pungent stone notes that can also be found on the textured and soundly concentrated middle weight flavors that terminate in a tension-filled, precise and well-balanced finish. Lovely and fashioned in an understated style that should allow for 6 to 8 years of upside development potential."

It begins with terroir. A large plot with the evocative name of “Les Champs Au Pied Du Mont” (or “the fields at the foot of the mountain”) is located on the slope overlooking the outskirts of Beaune. This vineyard, facing due east, produces both red and white wine. Chardonnay is planted on the upper part of the slope with chalky soil. The nose starts with a base of light oak quickly covered in river water; the chalk where it grows upon lends it this mineral characteristic and unique personality. Warm wood spice, golden apple and Chinese white pear flavors act as décolletage to the beautifully dominant minerality; think glacial, granitic runoff ensconced with a touch of sea salt. The palate weight is lush but kept lean as ápropos acidity courses throughout. The finish brings an echo of lemon curd that reverberates on and on for minutes. Beautiful wine.
