Bitouzet-Prieur, Meursault “Clos du Cromin”

In a region increasingly overrun with estates bottling young, forward, “modern” White Burgundy, the Bitouzet family are arch traditionalists. The family’s wines are seldom open and enjoyable upon release, but they offer a consistently impressive reward to those patient enough to cellar the wines. The family has been farming in Meursault and Volnay for hundreds of years. Their Meursault holdings, now overseen by Francois and Vincent Bitouzet, encompass both humble lieu-dits (a named vineyard with special qualities) and some of the village’s top Premier Crus. The vines that produce today’s wine come from the Clos du Cromin, a single, ancient walled lieu-dit that sits high atop a hill in Meursault’s northern section just below some of the top Premier Crus. This vineyard’s acidic soils combined with its cool, windswept location demand a significantly later harvest than its neighbors. The resulting wine has a deep and pure mineral core, and often requires a few extra years in bottle before reaching maturity. This effort is built to last and will improve over the next five to seven years or more if cellared properly. Those who enjoy the rich nuttiness and white truffle qualities of mature White Burgundy will certainly be rewarded. This is outstanding Chardonnay.

Enjoying the greatest wines of Beaujolais starts, as it usually does, with the lay of the land. In Beaujolais, 10 localities have been given their own AOC (Appellation of Controlled Origin) designation. They are: Saint Amour; Juliénas; Chénas; Moulin-à Vent; Fleurie; Chiroubles; Morgon; Régnié; Côte de Brouilly; and Brouilly.

Southwestern France


Bordeaux surrounds two rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which intersect north of the city of Bordeaux to form the Gironde Estuary, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The region is at the 45th parallel (California’s Napa Valley is at the38th), with a mild, Atlantic-influenced climate enabling the maturation of late-ripening varieties.

Central France

Loire Valley

The Loire is France’s longest river (634 miles), originating in the southerly Cévennes Mountains, flowing north towards Paris, then curving westward and emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near Nantes. The Loire and its tributaries cover a huge swath of central France, with most of the wine appellations on an east-west stretch at47 degrees north (the same latitude as Burgundy).

Northeastern France


Alsace, in Northeastern France, is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with vineyards running from the foothills of theVosges Mountains down to the Rhine River Valley below.
