About Domaine Jacques Prieur
Since 1868, Domaine Jacques Prieur has created one of the rarest mosaics of terroirs in Burgundy. Today it’s probably the only estate with vineyards on the greatest appellations both of Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, including Chambertin, Musigny, Clos Vougeot, Echézeaux, Corton, Meursault and Montrachet. This amazing collection is completed by other prestigious appellations and three clos monopole sites. Several of these phenomenal parcels of vines were snapped up at the turn of the 20th century by Jacques’ great uncle. Current custodians, the Labruyère family of southern Burgundy, became involved in 1988. The domaine, which switched to 100% organic viticulture in 2000, is nowadays run by Edouard Labruyère alongside the heirs of the Prieur family. The warm and acutely intelligent Nadine Gublin serves as oenologist, a position she has held since 1990. Steeped in tradition and armed with a quality-at-all-costs philosophy, the lofty standards of this great domaine keep on climbing.
