Ermes Pavese, Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle, 2019

White Wine from Valle d'Aosta, Italy
$31.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
Ermes Pavese's vineyards in the Valle d’Aosta, planted to the obscure native grape Prié Blanc and grown on ungrafted vines (the elevation is too high for phylloxera to thrive), are the highest in all of Europe. They are wines of pure mountain minerality, filigreed fruit and featherweight structure.

Mountain wines like Pavese’s Blanc de Morgex feels racier and more brisk than other white wines we know. It combines some of our favorite flavors and fragrances: aromas of verdant mountain herbs and tiny white flowers, delicate notes of exotic citrus and stone fruit. Combined with crushed stone minerality and a lithe, svelte body, what more could we ask for?

Because the holdings are so small, and the yields so low, the average annual production of this wine is just 12,000 bottles. So take advantage of today’s newsletter-only discounting, and enjoy a slice of the Alps from the comfort of your couch or dinner table — no hiking boots required.
