The 2011 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru from Domaine Jacques Prieur is the product of a 50 hectare walled vineyard created by the Cistercian Monks. Here the clay soil aids in the production of powerful and structured wines. This vintage is precocious, with beautiful sun-ripened berries. The 2011 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru from Domaine Jacques Prieur is aged in new oak barrels for 22 months. This 100% Pinot Noir has a somber red robe with intense glints of violet. The complex and aromatic bouquet is characterized by notes of black fruit - ripe black cherry - with hints of florals, smoke, toast, tobacco and leather. The attack is powerful and dense with spices and savory fruit. The tannins are rich and elegant.
