Serge Doré Selections, Chappaqua, NY.
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay from the Côte des Bar. Full malo.
Yellow-gold. From the east wind vintage and it shows. The berries are small yet intensely-flavored; the acidity is dramatic without the prissyness. He’s kinetic and conversant, speaks of pungent narcisssus and true ginger … not the candied stuff. Focused fruit, cassis and pineapple. The finish has persistence and Aube charm. Now – 2018+.
