Domaine Jacques Prieur

Country: France

Region: Burgundy

Sub-region: Meursault

Classification: Grand Cru

Production: Varied based on Jacques Prieur single vineyards

Grape: 100% Pinot Noir

Crate design: Domaine Jacques Prieur has one of the highest detailed crates in the world. The design with the most detail is the picture of the winery. This is on the long front side of the crate shown above. One short side is also branded.with the Jacques Prieur emblem.

Rarity: Uncommon. Burgundian wine crates in general are alot less common than Bordeaux. Domaine Jacques Prieur as a winery doesn't produce crates for all of their single vineyards, and they don't produce wooden wine crates every year.

Crate designation: Collector's Class ($30.00)

Our opinion/history: The great thing about Jacques Prieur is the detail of their designs. There are a few different styles, but they are all pictures of the same vineyard and chateau.

The winery was established in 1898, so it is still fairly young. The vineyard does however sit on some of the most pure and fertile land in Burgundy, and they've had alot of success in the past 100+ years. They produce a total of 9 Grand Cru class wines and 2 Premier Cru. Each is from a single vineyard from three different sub-regions of Burgundy.
