Red Burgundy Prieur 2017 Clos Vougeot

1 Case 6 75cl £750
  • Domaine Jacques Prieur
    2017
    Clos de Vougeot
    Grand Cru Red barrel
    Score: 88-91
    Tasted: Apr 10, 2019
    Drink: 2025+
    Issue: 74
    Note: from a 1.19 ha parcel of vines at the bottom of the slope; 20% whole clusters
    Producer note: Technical director and winemaker Nadine Gublin noted that 2017 "commenced early which is good if there is no late frost, which there was but we lucked out and avoided any significant damage. This was not only fortunate but it also signaled that the vegetative cycle would be advanced. After that the growing season was favorable and once again we began the harvest in August with the whites on the 29th. We waited though to pick the reds so that we could be sure to have good levels of phenolic maturity and thus we started on the 6th of September and continued through to the 12th. The fruit was not only clean but importantly had homogenous maturities. We used varying amounts of whole clusters in the vinifications which is to say from zero to 100%. As to the wines, I find it interesting just how much they improved during the élevage and that is as true for the whites as it is the reds. Perhaps the most attractive qualities of the wines are their freshness and balance which should enable them to age effortlessly." I found the quality of the 2017 reds to be quite good and particularly so with those from the Côte de Nuits. Readers should also take a look herein at a new négociant partnership between Domaine Prieur and co-owner and general director Edouard Labruyère that is called Labruyère-Prieur Sélection.

    Tasting note: Moderate wood influence isn't subtle though neither does it interfere with the spicy and ripe aromas of warm earth and poached plum. The attractively rich and velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors conclude in a bitter chocolate and warm finish. This is awkward today and while my range offers the benefit of the doubt, this was not an especially good showing.

    1er Cru Red barrel
    Score: 89-91
    Tasted: Apr 10, 2019

    Issue: 74
    Note: from younger vines in Clos des Santenots; 15% whole clusters

    Tasting note: Generous wood and menthol influences stop short of fighting with the relatively high-toned aromas of red raspberry, currant and newly turned earth. There is a notably finer mouth feel if not the same concentration to the delicious and attractively vibrant flavors that offer fine length if less complexity. This lilting effort could easily be enjoyed young though I would advise cellaring it in the hopes that better depth will develop.

Red Burgundy Prieur 2017 Corton Bressandes

1 Case 6 75cl £570
  • The 2017 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru contains 40% whole bunches and matures in around 50% new oak. It has quite an elegant bouquet with black cherries, raspberry coulis and flecks of dark chocolate, the oak neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, more masculine than the aromatics suggest, with a saline/briny finish that I personally find attractive. Very fine.

Red Burgundy Prieur 2015 Musigny

1 Case 3 75cl £1,650
  • Tasting note: An ultra-spicy and pure nose offers up notes of black raspberry, sandalwood and in the same fashion as the Ech, Asian-style exotic tea scents. There is a highly polished mouth feel to the impressively dense, serious and muscular flavors that exhibit plenty of minerality on the exceptionally firm finale where a hint of mocha appears. This beauty appears to have everything that it needs for a very long life. I would observe that the Prieur Musigny is often quite fine and sophisticated yet the 2015 version is not cut from that cloth; rather it is big, bold and robust and as I noted, is going to need time.
