Didier Herbert Pinot Noir DH2
Amazing perfumed nose full of blueberry, sea salt and blackcurrant. The entrance is very elegant followed by sweet toffee, salt and a creamy mid palate. Then the fruit hits – generous, full and round. There's a lovely mousse and a smokey rich mid to late. After a few days this wine truly shows its pedigree, becoming incredibly concentrated, rich and complex. There is such a beauty to the delivery – both singular and hugely complex and layered.
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.
