2018 Bitouzet Prieur Bourgogne Passetoutgrains
François Bitouzet’s ancestral roots in Burgundy cover at least the last two centuries. His father’s great-great grandfather, M. Gillotte, arrived in Auxey-Duresses in 1802 and was mayor of that village, as his other ancestors settled in Vonay in 1804. The Bitouzets were one of the first of the family domaines in this region to bottle their wines, with François great grandfather already garnering medals for his winemaking talents in 1860. François’s mother, Annie Prieur, has equally distinguished antecedents. Her family (both Prieurs and Perronnets) was long established in Meursault and Ladoix. The resulting “merger” of the Bitouzet and Prieur family holdings has created a domaine of distinction and breadth.
From a unique region in Burgundy that allows Gamay and Pinot Noir to be blended, this Passetoutgrains boasts bright cherries, vibrant florals stemming from the semi-carbonic maceration. Touches of aromatic herbs and a tangy, tantalizing finish beckon another glass.
