The vineyards of Domaine du Prieure are located on the east facing wooded slopes above the famous French villages of Pommard, Volnay and Meursault.

Many of the top domaines in Burgundy have vineyards located here to blend for everyday `red burgundy` but in the hands of specialist growers there are some outstanding wines being crafted.

Predominantly planted with Pinot Noir, these pretty vineyards on iron rich soils, have much of the same flattering character and elegance of the grander village wines grown on the slopes below. Generally aged for a shorter time in barrel, this makes them more approachable and easier drinking when young.

Found in the heart of the Cote de Beaune, the picturesque village of Savigny-les-Beaune has for a long time earned its good name. It was here that the monks of Citeaux, the founders of the Burgundian vineyard system, became substantial property owners. In order to administer their vineyards they established a priory in the 16th century, hence the name.

Today the domaine is owned by Jean-Michel Maurice, the mayor of Savigny, along with his son Stephen, who uses his international experience as winemaker.

From the village of Savigny in the Côte de Beaune, Jean Michel Maurice takes pride in preserving the subtle influence of the terroir and pure essence of Pinot Noir from the surrounding vignoble.

These Pinot Noir grapes are from the higher slopes above Savigny. This typical Burgundian Pinot Noir red wine extols the virtues of this tricky grape variety, with a purity of fruit and a captivating perfume of summer berries whilst finishing to a soft silkiness.

More Information


Burgundy, France

Burgundy (or Bourgogne in French) is small in size, the Côte d'Or has about 8000 hectares under vine, yet its influence is immense. It is home to some of the best known and most expensive wines in the world. Look in the right places and there is great quality and superb value to be found.

The two major grapes are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, though you can find small pockets of well-made Aligoté.


Pinot Noir

When made well, Pinot Noir shines. When young it has delicious aromas of cherries, raspberries, and strawberries.

As the wine ages, it will develop complexity and mystery. It has the capacity to become a gamey style of wine. It will show notes of autumn, truffles and mushrooms, especially when originating from the top vineyards of Burgundy. 


Stephen Maurice, Domaine du Prieuré

Stephen is the fourth generation of the Maurice family to make wine. Auguste, his great-grandfather, was working for other winemakers at the turn of the twentieth century when he planted a few vines in Savigny. Henry, born in 1921, bought a few plots and expanded the vineyards to 4 ha. Jean-Michel, born in 1955, bought more land in Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Stephen continues the family legacy.
