    100% Chardonnay, this wine is the product of a sunny terroir -East South East facing - situated mid-hillside and with perfect drainage. The 2011 Montrachet Grand Cru from Domaine Jacques Prieur is aged for 22 months in new oak barrels. The luminous green-gold color gradually reveals a very complex nose defined mineral iodine and flint notes with hints of pepper, anise and soft acacia flowers. The palate is rich, powerful and dense with more mineral notes and a strong salinity. The a long-lasting attack, the 2011 Montrachet Grand Cru from Domaine Jacques Prieur is a great vintage defined by its precociousness and beautifully ripe berries.

    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.
