Domaine Jacques Prieur, based in Meursault, France, produces red and white wines with grapes sourced from the Burgundy region of France. Gevrey-Chambertin is a village in the Cote-de-Nuits region of Burgundy.
The 2007 Domaine Jacques Prieur Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru is 100% Pinot Noir. The wine was aged in oak (I’m guessing all French!) for an undetermined period of time.
I discovered this bottle in early February at a Burgundy wine dinner hosted by Restaurant Nicholas, in Red Bank, NJ. Pinot Noir has never been a favorite variety of mine, nor have I often chosen France over the U.S., Spain, or Italy.
The wines at this dinner completely changed my mind with respect to both Pinot Noir and French wine. They were among some of the best I have ever tasted. I was fortunate enough to purchase several bottles from different producers after the dinner.
The 2007 Jacques Prieur Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru is one nice bottle of wine.
