This is quite deeply colored for a '96 and evidences no bricking after 13 years. Perhaps the best part of this wine is the nose, which is warm, inviting, seductive and gorgeously complex with abundant spice notes and really lovely elegance though there is also much to be said for the rich and phenolically ripe flavors that coat the palate with velvet on the broad and surprisingly round finish. I say surprisingly because there was none of the typical '96 edginess or green acidity and while this will certainly continue to hold, I would be drinking this now and over the next ten years. An excellent wine in the context of a variable vintage. Tasted twice with similar notes. Tasted: Dec 03, 2012 Drink: Now+ Rating: 94-94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Feb 2014)

Domaine Jacques Prieur

Domaine Jacques Prieur is the only domaine to have vineyards in each of the the 5 Grand Crus appellations in Burgundy -Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot, Corton Charlemagne and Musigny. In fact the domaine consists entirely of Premier and Grands Crus, with the exception of Clos de Mazeray in Meursault. Established in the late 18th century, the domaine has 21 hectares of vineyards, and is today overseen by Edouard Labruyère. Martin Prieur - the grandson of Jacques, who gave his name to the estate in 1956 - is still working in the vineyards and still has much to do with production.
