Jacques Prieur Puligny-Montrachet les Combettes Premiere Cru 2006
A ripe white rose and fresh lemon peel nose is trimmed in a subtle touch of oak toast before merging seamlessly into rich, full and generous medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of mid-palate fat and a real sense of volume before culminating in a fresh, intense and tension-filled finish. This is a really lovely effort that should enjoy 4 to 7 years of upside. Food Match: white meats, Soft cheeses, shrimp, shellfish, scallops, salmon, pate, oysters, lobster, fowl, fish, crab, chicken.
Domaine Jacques Prieur is a wine grower-producer in the Cote d'Or region of Burgundy. In 1990, it became a joint venture between the Prieur family and Antonin Rodet, a company in Cotes Chalonnaise.
A very focused, seemless wine. Floral and ripe stone fruits on the nose with hints of oaky-spiciness. Palette is round and balanced with a good mineral backbone, and just the right amount oak.
Three and a half glasses
