    2015 Exceptional sunshine!

    The year 2015 profited from completely exceptional climatic conditions with surplus sunning, very weak pluviometry and very high temperatures in June and July.
    The strong luminosity and heat marked this year with accelerated vegetative cycle and certain stages such as flowering at the beginning of June and ripening at the beginning of August were fulgurating.
    Harvests at Domaine Jacques Prieur started on 3rd September for Chardonnays and on 7th September for the Pinot Noirs.
    2015 can be illustrated as an extremely early vintage and it stands next to 2003, 2007 and 2011.
    The first tastings show generous white wines and refined red wines.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety : 100% Chardonnay on a 0,22 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    Situated on the hill where the Grands Crus of Corton are located. Facing due east, the vineyard overlooks the village of Ladoix-Serrigny and goes up to the edge of the forest. The vineyard is steep and very chalky, which confers an intense mineral quality.

  • Vinification & Ageing

    Whole bunches of grapes were handpicked into small crates and pressed in a pneumatic winepress. The juice was cold settled after pressing for 12-14 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. Alcoholic fermentation and ageing took place entirely in oak barrels. 100% malolactic fermentation
    Duration of ageing : 21 months

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in October 2017
    COLOUR : Luminous green gold with silver reflections.
    NOSE : Elegant and refined with slightly toasted notes, evolving into notes of flint and chalk.
    PALATE : Smooth and sapid featuring spicy notes (sweet spices). Dense, intense and very salivating on the finish with beautiful persistence.
