REGION: Burgundy, France
VARIETIES: Pinot Noir
One of those producers who makes some of the really BIG wines: Puligny-Montrachet and the like. We often avoid these types of producers. because the choice is so startling and disconcerting. But every now and again, you find a producer where it doesn’t matter - everything you try is fantastic. And it’s likely down to Francois Bitouzet and his attention to detail that this is the case. Although not his entry-level wine, this Volnay goes way beyond what you might normally expect.
