Domaine Jacques Prieur : Beaune 1er cru "Clos de la Féguine" Monopole 2007
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Prieur's 2007 Beaune Clos de la Feguine (from one of their two monopole vineyards) offers a consistently tight, bright, stony, saline, and citric personality. Aromatically it is rather shut-down, again making one wonder whether it isn't simply in need of short-term bottle evolution. But there is a sense of seamlessness of flavors here to match the wine's sleek, refined texture that was missing in the Mazeray and Santenots bottlings at this stage. And there is a palpable sense of extract that should help focus the flavors and make this fascinating to follow over at least the next 4-5 years.
