Didier Herbert Cuve 4
Pointed oak on the nose. Exotic, ripe, vinous. The oak use is decadent and beautiful and there is an amazing link of dark fruits that run endlessly through the palate and wonderful texture. Fantastic!
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.
