Domaine-Jacques-Prieur-Montrachet-Grand-Cru-2012

Domaine Jacques Prieur, Montrachet Grand Cru, 2012

“Straw-yellow color. Highly nuanced aromas of peach, menthol, botanical herbs and crushed stone suggest a powerful wine. Then hugely rich and densely packed, with strong saline minerality giving this superconcentrated big boy a chewy, savory quality. There’s a high-pitched oak element here that does not dominate the wine’s other elements. Still tight on the very long aftertaste but already saturates the palate with stone fruit and mineral flavors.”
- Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (92-94 points)

“The 2012 Montrachet Grand Cru comes from their 0.5863-hectares (to be exact) of vine, one plot located in the middle of the vineyard and one above located on the terrace. The bouquet takes a little while to start motoring, eventually unfolding to reveal scents of fresh lime, green apple, wet limestone and sea spray. The palate is well balanced with a slight viscous texture on the spicy, rich opening. There is plenty of depth here, with lightly honeyed fruit and that spicy leitmotif becoming more pronounced towards the finish. I can appreciate the persistency and a long saline aftertaste – superb.”
