A prestigious signature acclaimed by critics worldwide, Domaine Jacques Prieur shines in the firmament of French viticulture.
Its success and image are closely linked to that of Nadine Gublin, its appointed winemaker since 1990, and an all-around powerhouse. With her impeccable style and under the aegis of the Labruyère family, this historic estate in the heart of the Côte de Beaune is undoubtedly at its finest level yet.
Already praised for its range of different terroirs and its high quality, the estate is a must-have for wine aficionados everywhere.

The precision of execution, the perfect maturation, and the aging process combine with Nadine Gublin’s personal style and vision to create the most remarkable wines!
