Didier Herbert DH2 Pinot Noir Extra Brut NV
Family ties in winemaking going back three generations, today Didier's wines are impressive examples of what direction we're heading in the Champagne region. A combination of blending wines from a range of sites to using oak to maximise the power and expression of the wines, they have a bold and unforgettable character. The back label reads 1000% pinot noir and it is certainly not lying. Flame grilled peaches and apricots with a side of smoked bacon, myrtle berry and toasted brioche and rye. An evocative lick of acidity on the finish will stop you forgetting what just happened here.
