Montrachet Grand Cru

Domaine Jacques Prieur

2016

Burgundy

France

After a very mild winter and a warm spring weather in the second half of April, the bud break
was advanced but the frost with high level or humidity at the end of the month destroyed the
parcels with the best exposition. After the frost the vine was developing slowly. Acceleration in
growth and the maturity of grapes were possible thanks to very warm and dry summer, with
ripening that started quickly by mid-August. The harvest started on 20th September and the
sanitary condition of the vineyard was perfect.
