La Cave du Vin Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle

Valée d'Aosta Prié Blanc 2020

I’m not sure where my previous note went.
Just when you thought you knew Italy, up pops this might as well be SwissFrench alpine darling from the Vallée D’Aoste.
Blanc de Morgex et de la salle. The town/village of Morgex lies just below Mt. Blanc. The Prié Blanc vines thrive in soil that has not known phylloxera.
Stones, herbs,and lemons all wrapped up in a rather electric pkg. I think drink young. Cold, the nose doesn’t have much to say past stone fruit, maybe rainier cherries.,But the palate is pow! Lemons, herbs, mineral, high acid and refreshing. With fried Branzino, perfect!
Always a sucker for high altitude Italian.

Most of the notes for this wine are under “Ermes Pavese”. It would be great if Delectable could consolidate duplicate (or more) entries.

Some wine shop described as “blackberry, liquorice, smoke, mint”. Usually find these descriptions BS but this one seemed about right. Really enjoyed this with fatty brisket braised with Mexican flavors. Yum. — 3 months ago
