Eric Rodez Empreinte De Terroir 2003 Chardonnay Product #30334 (In Stock)
Eric Rodez  Empreinte De Terroir 2003 Chardonnay Eric Rodez  Empreinte De Terroir 2003 Chardonnay

Eric's Empreinte De Terroir series is designed to showcase the unique character of his Grand Cru Ambonnay vineyard in a single vintage - in this case, the warm 2003 harvest.  From nearly 50 year-old vines, it is 100% barrel fermented and aged and spends 10 years on the lees before disgorgement with just 2 g/l dossage.

Complex and evolved aromas of brioche, toast, grilled nuts, and dried honey lead to a bone dry wine with swirling, hard-to-describe, flavors.  Dried flowers and apples, more toast and nuts, and a touch of fresh herb honey are all here in a rich wines with a bright, energetic, wine that lingers forever.  A wine to contemplate or pair with rich seafood dishes.  Very rare and limited.

Eric Rodez Empreinte De Terroir 2003 Pinot Noir Product #30335 (In Stock)
Eric Rodez  Empreinte De Terroir 2003 Pinot Noir Eric Rodez  Empreinte De Terroir 2003 Pinot Noir

Eric's Empreinte De Terroir series is designed to showcase the unique character of his Grand Cru Ambonnay vineyard in a single vintage - in this case, the warm 2003 harvest.  From 30 year-old Pinot Noir vines, it is 100% barrel fermented and aged and spends 8 years on the lees before disgorgement with just 2 g/l dossage.

The 2003 shows a copper-tinged color with extremely fine bubbles.  Aromas of cherries, red flowers, and toast explode from the glass.  In the mouth it’s extremely deep, rich, and robust with complex flavors of red fruits, graphite and baked bread.  The flavors drive to a seemingly endless finish as hints of red raspberry and toast linger.  While fascinating to drink on its own, this would pair wonderfully with duck or any dish featuring wild mushrooms.  This will just get better in cellar over the next decade or so.
