Overview

La Bastid is a blend of Viura and Garnacha Blanca originally from nine plots of vines around Labastida in Rioja Alavesa, but with the 2019 vintage, he has moved this project to the village of Cárdenas, where he has been expanding his vineyard holdings. Olivier considers this wine his Côtes de Nuits Blanc in his own internal hierarchy of things. Before the 2016 vintage, this wine was labeled as Jequitiba, from 2016.
