Domaine des Orchis (Philippe Héritier)

Quintessence de Mondeuse 2017


Intriguing, beguiling red, ruby barely opaque w/evolving nose of blackberry and plum Gummy Bear, a lift (maybe Alpine?) but def hi-toned note, herby Ricola, devious spice, medicinal & forest floor, floral. Needs food, played well w/duck breast. Med weight & med acidity. As @Lyle Fass mentioned: Gamay-esque, also reminded me of Lagrein. Killed this bottle in no time. Unique & esoteric variety, thanks Lyle — 17 days ago

Zéro Dosage Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne Blend 2012

Really hit the spot. Small pours to savor the fine bubbles. Bright front, long finish of fresh baked bread — 11 days ago


Brut Blanc de Noirs 1er Cru Champagne Pinot Noir

Popped and poured. In the glass, a bright, golden peach color with a persistent mousse. On the nose, some marzipan, rose and brioche. The palate is electric; laser-cut with lime citrus, citrus pith and absolutely loaded with limestone minerals. Super fresh with bracing acidity. The finish is long and zippy. This is not what I expected from a BdN…but I like it! Disgorged February 2017. — a month ago
