Jacques Prieur Champs Pimont 1er 2018/2019



This climat of the “Champs au pied du mont” borders the 1er crus “Aux Cras” and “Les Teurons”. It climbs the hillside over an area of ​​2.06 hectares facing due east. The soils are composed of clay on the bottom with a high concentration of iron on the top, which brings out smoky notes. The grapes are harvested by hand in small crates then sorted and completely destemmed. Fermentation took place for 21 days in open wooden vats. The Domaine carried out a punching down twice a day during the alcoholic fermentation. The malolactic fermentation is carried out at 100%, aging for 20 months in oak barrels.

The color is dark ruby ​​red with intense purple hues. Pleasant, the nose reveals roasted and liquorice notes evolving with aeration on notes of very ripe black cherry. Beautiful sapidity on the palate, the wine is rich and greedy with superb freshness and crunchy tannins. Slightly spicy finish.


“The 2018 Beaune Champs Pimonts 1er Cru is de-stemmed and matured in 25% new oak. That wood is showing more conspicuously than in the other Beaune crus and will need time to be assimilated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, quite fleshy and forward. Lightly spiced red fruit appears toward the finish, which tapers in slightly (possibly closing down for the second winter). Good potential, though.”
