Tasting Notes

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.

Staff Pick Notes

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is one of my all time favorite films. The tony main characters attempt to dine together, only to be thwarted at every turn by absurd and surreal events. There are ghosts! An imaginary Central American country! A vigil for a very recently departed restaurant manager! Female assassins! This film has it all, aside from an actual feast. Ermes Pavese's Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle has it all as well, and you don't need a feast either to enjoy this. This is a complex, comforting, and deeply interesting wine to serve to all guests, gardeners and bishops included.
