Domaine Jacques Prieur : Clos Vougeot Grand cru 2011
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Clos de Vougeot 2011 from Jacques Prieur articulates a modern style of winemaking compared to others in the Clos Vougeot flight, boasting ripe dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit that is pleasant if not particularly terroir-driven. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe tannins, firm structure but blocky toward the rugged finish that suggests that it was pushed in the winery.
