TASTING NOTES

The Cave Mont Blanc winery is located on the slopes of Mont Blanc, precisely in Morgex in the Aosta Valley, on the left bank of the Dora Baltea river. The company was founded in 1983 and has since developed into a cooperative aimed at valorising the work of around one hundred members and winegrowers who, in conditions that are nothing short of heroic, tend to 120 hectares of vineyards located at an altitude between 900 and 1200 metres above sea level. The main grape variety in the production of Cave Mont Blanc is Prié Blanc, an indigenous white from which wines of surprising full flavour are obtained, whether produced with the Metodo Classico, dry white wines or late harvest. Dedicated to mountain guides, the Cuvée des Guides is made from 100% Prie Blanc, from vineyards at an altitude of over 1000 metres. After manual harvesting, the wine matures in stainless steel vats, followed by the entire second fermentation and resting phase on yeasts at an altitude of 2173 metres above sea level, where the unique aerial and climatic characteristics determine the quality of the perlage. The result is a Valdostan sparkling wine with an extreme and essential character, in which minerality and Alpine freshness stand out. Straw yellow in colour and enriched by a fine and persistent perlage, Cuvée des Guides reveals citrus notes and balsamic notes of mountain herbs on the nose, confirming them on the palate by being straight and taut, with a fresh finish and unique full flavour. Ideal to enjoy throughout a meal or for a special dinner, perfect as a pairing with typical Valdostan products such as fontina cheese and Arnad lard. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Cave Mont Blanc

Wonderfully active production, inextricably linked to Mont Blanc, has always characterised the work of the Cave de Mont Blanc winery. In over thirty years of activity, in fact, the company has specialised in classic method production of sparkling wines, focusing on the enhancement of the queen white grape of the Aosta Valley. This delicate process gives rise to Priè Blanc, one of the very few still ungrafted varieties that survived the phylloxera of the late 19th century. In the past ten years of activity, the winery has wanted to further reinforce its close relationship with Mont Blanc by starting production of a small reserve of sparkling wine using the classic method. The particularity of this wine lies in its strategic position: production takes place at an altitude of over 2000 metres. The temperature, the different atmospheric pressure and the unusual processing conditions give the wine unique characteristics, all waiting to be discovered. Name and address of producer/distributor: Cave Mont Blanc - Str. Des Iles, 31, 11017 Morgex AO. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
