Domaine du Prieure 'Les Caves du Prieure' Cremant de Bourgogne Brut, France
Since 1921, at the entrance of the sleepy village of Savigny-les-Beaune resides this lovely estate. Jean-Michel has now passed the stewardship of Domaine du Prieure to the third generation, his son Stephen Maurice. The wines of Stephen and Lucie are reflections of their personalities; profound, refined and elegant and our experience of their wines from the family cellars from the 1960's are truly breathtaking.
The estate's Cremant is a dead ringer for a real-deal Champagne. A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this one offers up attractive notes of spiced pear, apple, citrus, almond, hazelnut, and chalky mineral.
