Many of you have raved about his Oregon Pinots that have pretty much become a Nicholas Wines exclusive and Bertrand has been very generous with his pricing for his ‘Nicholas friends’ (that’s you guys).
But Bertrand called me last week, asking me(?!?) for a favor. It seems the ambitious winemaker just couldn’t help himself and while working on his Oregon Pinot Project, he decided to begin work on a clandestine Chardonnay.
The winemaker responsible for the 11-thousand dollar per bottle DRC Montrachet just fell in love with a tiny parcel of Oregon Chardonnay, atop Winter’s Hill in the Dundee Hills and adjacent from Domaine Serene. “With breezy, cool nights, it bore a surprising resemblance to my favorite Vosne-Romanée parcels. I couldn’t help myself. Just four barrels. What’s the harm?”
Well – the harm was he didn’t necessarily have the blessing of the brass back home and they didn’t really want their five figure per bottle winemaker lending his hands to a Chardonnay off the books.
