The Domaine of Paul Prieur et Fils has farmed vines in Sancerre for 11 generations, now run by the young and dynamic Luc Prieur. The estate has 14 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and 5 hectares of Pinot Noir. In the last decade Luc has introduced single-vineyard expressions of each of these and can count among their parcels vines in the historic vineyard 'Mont Damnes', perhaps Sancerre's most famed site.
Luc has made the Pinots a speciality of the domaine and in our opinion these are the best reds in Sancerre. The wines are quite remarkable for their concentration and richness of fruit.
