Wine Beaune Premier Cru "Champs-Pimont", 2011 from Domaine Jacques Prieur is made from Chardonnay grapes grown in the vineyard class Premiers Crus with the expressive title "Les Champs aux pieds du mont" ("The fields at the foot of the mountain"). The vineyard is located on a hillside near the suburb of the city of Beaune. Chardonnay grows in the upper part of the vineyard on the chalky soil, which contributes to the birth of mineral wines with bright, expressive character in the finish which is often felt salty notes.
The year 2011 was marked by a rather mild and dry winter, the shift to a period of warm spring weather. Favorable conditions allowed the vines to bloom in early April, which is 3 weeks earlier than the average for the period from 1994 to 2010. Over the next three months, dry, warm weather caused a rapid and profuse flowering vine. However, by mid-summer rains and cold autumn air temperatures slowed down the ripening of berries. But despite this, and thanks to the steady warm weather in August, the harvest was up to mid-September.

Wine is aged for 21 months, after which the light is born delightful "Beaune Les Champs-Pimont", fascinates with its taste and aroma.
