Domaine Jacques Prieur, Chambertin Grand Cru, 2011 - very tasty, delicious and elegant wine created from Pinot Noir from the vineyard of Grand Cru Class, located in appellasone Chambertin in the Côte de Nuits. The property Domain Jacques Priёra - plot with eastern exposure, situated on a hillside, covering an area of 1.84 hectares.
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. The grapes are harvested by hand, fingered and separated from the ridges. After maceration on the skins for 20 days at a controlled temperature in open oak barrels with stirring mash twice a day, drink was subject to malolactic fermentation. Excerpt took place in oak barrels for 17 months. Chambertin Grand Cru 2011 excites the imagination with its magnificent fruity aroma and delicious velvety taste.
