Prieure Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2019

2019 Prieure Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Beaune

I’ve been on the hunt for good, value-priced Red Burgundy, and I’ve found it in the 2019 Prieure Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Beaune.

This small, third generation, family-run estate calls Savigny-les-Beaune home, and they have produced an utterly scrumptious Pinot Noir in the high quality 2019 vintage. You will be blown away by the silky and balanced concentration of this wine.

I have long been a fan of the wines from Domaine du Prieure. A major over-achiever, their wines represent some of the finest Burgundy values of any I taste every year. I’d be remiss not to mention that these wines come from Chloe Wines, the Seattle-based importer that also brings us Capitain-Gagnerot.

The estate’s 2019 Hautes-Cotes de Beaune comes a single parcel of Pinot Noir planted back in 1981. This southeast facing vineyard is located at the highest elevation deep in the village of Savigny les Beaune. Old vines combined with the cooler nature of this site yielded a beautiful, highly nuanced, and perfectly balanced wine in the hot and sunny 2019 vintage.

This is a wine that is characterized by perfect ripeness of fruit balanced by zesty acidity. With a nice mix of red and dark berries combined with more complex notes of damp earth, woodsy spice, and forest floor, this medium-bodied effort offers immediate gratification. That means drink it now, like tonight!

Finding tasty Red Burgundy at this price point is nearly impossible. Being that this is my favorite category of wine, I feel more than qualified in my assessment of this wine. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Just 8 cases available, and that is it for the vintage.
