Description

The marriage of Vincent Bitouzet and Anne Prieur created this domaine with a stellar range of vineyards across Volnay and Meursault. There are holdings in almost all the prime sites: Taillepieds, Caillerets and Clos des Chênes in Volnay and Charmes and Perrières in Meursault, among others. It’s their only son, François, who has inherited this wonderful range. Viticulture and winemaking are sensitively handled: there have been no herbicides across the domaine since 1993, and organic viticulture is practised though not certified. Until now, François had to juggle his workload between cellars in Meursault for the white wines, and the lovely family home in Volnay for the reds. From the 2019 vintage, he has a brand spanking new winery on the outskirts of Meursault, with a customised cuverie, and temperature- and humidity-controlled maturation cellars all under one roof. Without a doubt, these developments will further empower François and add even greater precision to an already impressive range.

The domaine has 1.5 hectares across three different plots in this vineyard, midway between the village and the Volnay border. A lower-slope site, the wine’s style tends towards generosity and in 2020 there are butterscotch notes and the sense of a lot of texture. The wine’s freshness is there, although slightly masked for now by its structure. Drink 2023-2029.
