Tasting Notes

It’s a first from Didier— 100% Grand Cru and a single commune wine, not to mention an “alien” terroir down in the “Mediterranean heat” of Oger, which is about six miles away from Cuis, by the way. It’s 55% Terres de Noël, 18% Fondy (on clay, not chalk) and Champs Nérons (chalk again, and 64 year vines). Didier himself calls it “less fruity and more austere,” but I find it seductive, with classic smoke and nectarine, easygoing yet classical. —Terry Theise
