Reviews of purchase Domaine Jacques Prieur, Beaune Premier Cru "Champs-Pimont", 2008, 375 ml
Wine of deep black and dark ruby color with a violet hue.
In a powerful, concentrated, mineral taste wine felt the tone of strawberries and ripe berries, with a long aftertaste. Tannins are very rich, dense, deep and mature.
The wine has a rich aroma with notes of wild berries, spices, tobacco and smoke.
Great wine with grilled meats and cheeses.
