Domaine Jacques Prieur : Montrachet Grand cru 2011
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Montrachet Grand Cru 2011 from Jacques Prieur has a more powerful bouquet than the Marquis de Laguiche, although it is not quite as refined. Touches of slate start to evolve with aeration -- dried yellow flowers and hints of wild honey with time in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with well-judged acidity, a little riper and more powerful than Marc Colin's Montrachet, but a little blunter and slightly more oxidative in style. Grilled walnut and smoke adorn the vivacious finish that is long, but just missing that killer penetration.
