Last of the 2014 Bitouzet-Prieur Whites

 
Bitouzet 2014 Whites Header
2014 Meursault including Les Perrieres...
  
Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur is a Meursault and Volnay specialist. The domaine was founded in 1860 and 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.
 
Today the wine making is handled by Francois Bitouzet who, like many of his generation, has improved and refined the domaine's style. In terms of character, the domaine's wines are models of typicity, finesse and elegance.

Our 2014's are on the way and we still have a small quantity of three of the Meursault available at Pre Arrival Prices. This includes the Perrieres, one of the finest 1er Crus of Burgundy.

It is worth noting that Francois has been forced to increase price of his 2015's significantly because of the issues with hail in 2016. At the moment the 2014 whites, from a great vintage, look to be excellent value.

Bitouzet Perrieres New
Burghound: (from 30+ year old vines). A gentle application of wood frames a cool and airy mix of white orchard fruit, in particularly green apple, along with the classic floral and mineral notes. There is good if not great concentration to the relatively powerful medium-bodied flavors that possess a suave mouth feel, all wrapped in a chiseled, energetic and impressively lingering finish. This is not as dense or complex as the Charmes but it is notably finer plus I suspect that much more depth will develop with time in bottle. 90-93 Points

Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes 2014
Normally $173.95
Pre Arrival Price $147.95
11 bottles available

Bitouzet Charmes Label Burghound: (Bitouzet has 2 parcels, one in Charmes du Bas and another in Charmes du Haut that are vinified, and raised, separately but then blended). Very strong reduction completely dominates the underlying fruit. The powerful and admirably concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess a very round, suave and succulent texture where all of the dry extract really coats the mouth on the explosively long, complex and driving finish. This should be a knockout in 7 to 10 years and it's going to need at least 4 to 5 first
. 90-93 Points

Last of the 2014 White Burgundies

 

There is no question that 2014 is one of the great vintages for White Burgundy (and very handy for red too).


 

We still have a selection of wines available from the Cote d'Or and Chablis.
