Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Prieur 2006 Beaune Champs Pimonts is altogether more complex, sensually satisfying, and authoritative than this year's Clos de la Feguine. (I can only assume that the latter's monopole status accounts somehow for its higher price.) Smelling of yellow plum, lemon, white truffle, white peach, and chalk dust, it offers soothing, creamy, mouth-coating persistence allied to refreshing brightness, and an alluring dynamic of fruit and stony minerality. This rich, nuanced wine should be worth following for at least 4-6 years in bottle. The rich, glossy, yet overtly mineral 2005 is comparably impressive.
