Buy Domaine Jacques Prieur Clos Vougeot
Wine Advocate 91 points - The finished 2005 Clos Vougeot offers surprisingly candied black raspberry and cherry aromas, with floral, carnal and mineral notes largely overwhelmed by the sheer sweetness of perfume. Formidably dense and mouth filling, it is possessed of considerable tannic chew yet persistent sweetness. Cedary, smoky, and toasty notes emerge in the finish, and suggestions of meat and stone manage to assert themselves as well. I suspect this wine will harden not too long after bottling even if a lot of superficial sweetness remains. Certainly it can scarcely be faulted for sheer concentration, although I prefer the extra measure of transparency in the Corton. (Jun 2007)

The Domaine’s strong point is to bring together under one name a selection of wines from the most prestigious terroirs in Burgundy. From Le Montrachet to Le Chambertin, by way of Le Corton, Les Echezeaux, and Le Musigny, the Domaine owns vineyards in some 22 appellations, including the most mythical in the Cote d’Or. Consisting entirely of Grands Crus and Premiers Crus (except for Clos de Mazeray in Meursault, an exclusivity), the Domaine produces famous white and red wines.
