Winemaker Notes

The 5.6 acre Domaine Jacques Prieur parcel of 1er Cru Champ-Pimont sits on the slope overlooking the town of Beaune just west of the village. The vineyard faces due east and produces both red and white wines of superior quality.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Rich and structured, this red displays cherry, raspberry, mineral and earth flavors, with accents of spice. Vibrant and long, with a warm, spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2022.

V 90
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Bright dark red. Aromas of raspberry, spices and crushed stone. Sweeter than the Greves, with fruit-dominated redcurrant and raspberry flavors nicely framed by ripe acidity. Not hugely filled in yet but finishes with good breadth, with the tongue-dusting tannins arriving late. I tasted this wine at the end of its malolactic fermentation.

Jacques Prieur
In the small, select group of legendary Burgundy domaines is one of the finest: the Domaine Jacques Prieur. Founded in 1956, the estate owns unique holdings of vines in no less than five of the mythic appellations of Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot, Corton-Charlemagne and Montrachet. These prized parcels comprise 20.65 hectares (51 acres) of choice Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, and annual production is a mere 80,000 bottles. In 1988, Antonin Rodet became a major shareholder and the Prieur estate has benefited from the additional financial backing. The style of Jacques Prieur wines is one characterized by opulent, aromatic profiles, rich textures and concentrated flavors. These modern styled wines earn consistently high scores from The Wine Spectator, The Wine Advocate, International Wine Cellar and Burghound.

Formerly associated with inexpensive bulk wine but dramatically shifting focus from quantity to quality, Argentina is the most important wine-producing country in South America. Certainly excellent values abound here still, but increases in vineyard investment, improved winery technology, and a commitment to innovation since the late 20th century have contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains can be used to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

Mendoza, a large and famous region responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white. The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.

View More

Unapologetically fun and distinctively fragrant, Torrontés is regarded as the signature white grape of Argentina. In many ways it bears a striking resemblance to Muscat (and in fact is the offspring of Muscat of Alexandria), but the primary difference is that it is almost always vinified completely dry. This results in a wine that smells sweet upon first sniff, but is decidedly not on the palate. Torrontés is grown extensively throughout Argentina and performs best in the Salta region. It is also planted to a lesser extent in neighboring Uruguay.

In the Glass

No one has ever accused Torrontés of being shy in either aroma or flavor. Notes of rose petals, geranium, stone fruit, Meyer lemon, ripe melon, and orange blossom leap out of the glass, and the palate refreshes with a healthy dose of acidity and a streak of salinity. Torrontés should be consumed in its youth to highlight its vibrancy and primary fruit flavors.

Perfect Pairings

Torrontés needs no food—it is delightful on its own as an aperitif wine. However, it can be quite a pleasant pairing with Asian or Indian cuisine, especially coconut curries. Stick to lighter fare like poultry, pork, or seafood in sauces that are flavorful but not heavy. Torrontés also makes for an ideal accompaniment to a bowl of fresh fruit.

Sommelier Secret

If you’re in search of a new summer sipper, look no further than Torrontés. These wines are always inexpensive, delightfully refreshing, and are best utilized outdoors in warm weather at a picnic, beside a pool, or on a porch.
