A prestigious hallmark crowned with the highest critical acclaim, Domaine Jacques Prieur shines at the pinnacle of French viticulture. In fact, it's the only estate to own a third of the grand crus of Côte d’Or...
Its success and reputation are also inextricably linked to Nadine Gublin, the dedicated winemaker since 1990, who has carved out a relentlessly precise and uncompromising style for the estate.
Under the stewardship of the Labruyère family, this historic address in the heart of the Côte de Beaune is arguably experiencing its golden era. Grand both in its array of terroirs and the quality of its wines, the estate is more than just a sure bet: it's a must-have. Managed under organic farming since 1997 (currently in the process of certification), the estate's thirty hectares of vineyards produce grapes of exceptional quality, which are then masterfully vinified. The precision in execution, the perfectly measured aging: nothing is left to chance, and to this exactness is added the personal expression of Nadine Gublin.
