Bitouzet-Prieur Volnay Pitures 2002


SKU nbbivp021


The "Pitures" vineyard is on the the Pommard side of Volnay and produces a "sauvage" wine with a sensual rusticity. This is the most "animal" of the Bitouzet reds, quite masculine and firm with profound tannins and great concentration; its deep color announces a wine of excellent density.

BurghoundHeavily reduced and impossible to read on the nose. As is usually the case with this wine, it's rich but very firmly structured though the buffering sap is quite impressive and the tannins are entirely ripe. In short, this is a powerful yet nicely balanced wine that will require time.
