Ermes Pavese Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle


A stunning wine from the highest vineyard site in Europe, this austere, racy, mineral white wine displays aromas of citrus blossom, lemon, and crushed stone, all underpinned by vivacity and length.

These vineyards are in contention to be the highest in Europe at nearly 3600 feet, in the shadow of Mont Blanc. Here, Ermes Pavese crafts this elegant wine from the Prié grape, the oldest documented variety in Valle d'Aosta, on tiny little trellises to keep the grapes out of the punishing alpine wind. The wine is austere, racy, and mineral with vivacity and length.
