Domaine-Jacques-Prieur-Echezeaux-2015

Domaine Jacques Prieur, Echezeaux, 2015

“(13.8%; from 30- and 60+-year-old vines; 3-1/2 barrels made, versus just 1 in 2016): Bright dark red. Sappy, pure aromas of black and red fruits and pungent minerals lifted by a floral topnote. Wonderfully penetrating and smooth, displaying outstanding intensity and class to its fruit and savory mineral flavors. Offers a compelling combination of velour and weightlessness. Thick and seamless but still youthfully tight, this very pure wine finishes with superb subtle rising length. This very cool site can perform splendidly in hot years like 2015; indeed, the estate harvested these vines at the end, on September 11. But winemaker Gublin noted that the first vintage was 1996 and that the estate “has never had a negative surprise, in either cold or hot years.” I prefer this wine to the Chambertin for its suavity. And here the terroir (Domaine Prieur’s vines are in Les Champs Traversins and Les Poulaillères) dominates the vintage character. A wine of great panache.”
