Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur is a Volnay specialist. This domaine was founded in 1860. The arrival of the latest generation in the form of Vincent Bitouzet, has seen the domaine adopt a new attitude to vineyard management resulting in a rapid rise in quality of the wines produced. The domaine is moving towards organic agriculture.
In terms of style, the domaine’s wines express finesse and elegance (as you expect from Volnay). Harvesting is carried out manually. The red grapes are sorted very thoroughly, so as to have total control over what goes into the tanks. With vinification, the keyword is respect for the terroirs. Vincent and François Bitouzet work hard so as not to lose the “terroir effect”, but rather to reveal it as much as possible. “Others envy us our terroirs.
The more typical the wine is, the less chance that others will achieve the same quality”, they both affirm.
