This cuvée is one of the gems of the domaine, a complete expression of this vineyard’s special character as Bitouzet’s holdings fall within two separate sites: one from the high part and another from the lower section. The two parcels are vinified separately and then blended together before bottling. The lower section provides a stony minerality and an almost tannic expression; the upper section yields explosive aromatics as well as a round, buttery mouthfeel. The two parcels make up a total of 0.55 hectare; the vines were planted in 1944 and another section in 1987. The soil is a pebbly limestone with sand and loam consistency. Two barrels are reserved for the US market.

This is a bright and juicy white from the Piedmont region in Northern Italy. Gorgeous soft, floral fruit with peach and honey and freshness. Serious elegance here with a mouthful of bright, crisp minerality.
