From: Valle d'Aosta, Italy
Varietal: 100% Prié Blanc from Valle d’Aosta
Tasting Notes: This is a thirst-quenching Après Ski! It is a stunning wine from the highest elevation vineyard in all of Europe. It’s an austere, racy, mineral-driven white that displays aromas of citrus blossom, lemon, mountain herbs, and crushed stone from the sandy, glacial moraine soil. The palate has vivacity and length.
Pairing: White Fish, Veggies, Arugula Salal with Apples
Ermes Pavese is a youthful grower in the commune of La Ruine just outside of the town of Morgex in the high Alps, minutes from the summit of Mont Blanc. Pavese works the native grape known as Prié Blanc. Starting with barely two hectares of vineyards, situated at about 1200 meters above sea level, Pavese has gradually expanded his holdings in this high altitude zone. He now produces three versions of Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle. Because these vineyards are so isolated, Pavese has been able to work with the original, pre-Phylloxera root stock since that malady never infiltrated this area when it came sweeping through Europe many years ago. This is an amazing bottle of white wine that you can drink all night long. A stunning wine from the highest vineyard site in Europe, with annual production of about 12,000 bottles of this austere, racy, mineral white wine with vivacity and length." (Neal Rosenthal)
