Winemaker Notes

Dark and intense red color. The nose is just a little bit woody, with black fruits aromas (marmalade of blackcurrant, berries), and violet smells. The wine is very meaty and powerful. Rich and well balanced, the tannins are very expressive in the first mouth. Become more souple when ageing. Very good length.

Critical Acclaim

BH 91
Burghound.com
A notably ripe extract of cassis and black cherry liqueur is cut with soft spice and wet stone nuances that serve as an elegant introduction to the detailed and beautifully textured medium weight flavors that display excellent depth and strikingly good persistence. This well-balanced beauty should amply reward 10 to 12 years of cellar time.

A committed classicist, Vincent Bitouzet has provided us with over thirty-years worth of structured, demanding, age-worthy, satisfying wines, both red and white, from the heart of the Cote de Beaune. Based in Volnay and blessed with extensive holdings in Meursault as well, this domaine is a tried and true standard bearer for all that is fundamentally good and sound in Burgundy: conscientious and sensitive work in the vineyards, respect above all for the specific character of each lieu-dit, patience and attention to detail in the cellar, and a commitment to producing wines of depth and, of critical importance, longevity. To truly understand great white and red burgundy, one must wait for these grand expressions of terroir to mature to reveal their splendor and spectacular nuance.

Vincent Bitouzet's ancestral roots in Burgundy cover at least the last two centuries. His great-great grandfather, M. Gillotte, arrived in Auxey Duresses in 1802 and was mayor of that village. In 1804, the Bitouzet line settled in Volnay. The Bitouzets were one of the first of the family domaines in this region to bottle their wines. Vincent's grandfather had already garnered medals for his winemaking talents in 1860. Vincent's wife, Annie Prieur, has equally distinguished antecedents. Her family (both Prieurs and Perronnets) was long established in Meursault and Ladoix. The resulting "merger" of the Bitouzet and Prieur family holdings has created a domaine of distinction and breadth. Francois Bitouzet, the only son of Vincent and Annie, is now working hand-in-hand with his parents as he maintains the deep Burgundian roots of his ancestors.
