Jacques Prieur is widely hailed as one of the most sought-after Domaines in Burgundy. With 51 acres of vines across 22 appellations… a number unmatched by any other grower.
The actual Domaine was founded in 1870, although Jacques Prieur (a co-founder of the famous Chevaliers du Tastevin) gave his name to the estate in 1956. Whilst steeped in history, their vineyards have been farmed organically since 1997 and bio dynamically since 2009, although the wines are not labelled as such. As with most Top Gun producers in Burgundy, even should you be lucky enough to gain entrance and a tour of the cellar, the wines are simply not available for sale. Every single bottle is allocated. Luckily for us, one recipient of an annual allocation is Alex Dale from The Winery of Good Hope.
