You really couldn’t ask for anything more out of a Burgundy producer. The Bitouzet line was established in the village of Volnay in the Côte de Beaune in 1804, one of the first to bottle their wines instead of selling their fruit. Current winemaker, Vincent Bitouzet, married Annie Prieur, whose family had a very good establishment in the village of Meursault. Naturally, the merging of the familys’ lands and names have made for a worthy domain that’s really stood the test of time. Francois Bitouzet, their only son, has now taken on shared responsibilities with his parents. The quality of their impressive lineup of wines is still unwavering.
This wine may as well have made the cut as a true Meursault. It certainly lies within the village boundary, though its classification rings in as a Bourgogne Blanc, which in this case is very much in its favor. The vines were planted in 1953. Aging is on par with wines of the region; barrel-aged for 12-15 months in smaller barrels, a fifth of which are new.
