Didier Herbert Meunier DH2
2018, aged on cork. 1000% Meunier! An intense rollercoaster of a wine. Huge, vinous, rich and engaging. This wine takes over the moment you put it to your nose. Juicy, textural, sweet and saline. The palate is gorgeous yet serious at the same time. The mid to late has that perfect gripping nature and the finish is never ending!
A wonderful discovery on one of our many trips having found a bottle in one of the go to shops in Reims, Cave du Forum. A quick email to the team at Didier Herbert and we were sitting in front of a spectacular vertical of Les Coutures going back to the 1960s. Working with 30 parcels in 5 villages including Rilly la Montagne, Ludes, Verzenay and Mailly, Didier creates wines with incredible structure, complexity and an engaging character.
