Joel M. Fisher PhD’s From the Grapevine: Tasting at Heritage in Beverly Hills

Joel M. Fisher PhD’s From the Grapevine: Tasting at Heritage in Beverly Hills

Tasted October 6th at Heritage, Beverly Hills and hosted by Jordane Andrieu.

I have to tell you I had never heard of Heritage until a member of my larger family living in Calistoga, David, wanted me to know of this restaurant and wine store. So, I followed up and went there to be greeted by Jordane Andrieu, the principal owner of this Paris type bistro, with a solid wall of wines ahead of us.

We began the adventure with an oyster paired with a white wine (all of those brought to us were from Jordane’s estate Clos Du Moulin aux Moines.) The first Bottle was the Bulles du Mouilin Aligote (2014) and 12% alcohol. Clear, white and yellow colors and spicy on the palate, the wine showed a medium body, good fruit on the palate with a bounce to it. Complex, which seemed to change, and a moderate finish.

Our second wine was a Bourgogne, Clos de la Perriere Chardonnay (2015) at 13% alcohol count, the strongest of the evening. Paired with salmon, the bottle showed a clear, sharp color, a light body. It didn’t seem complex, but was showing sharpness and spiciness. I thought it more complicated than at the beginning. With the food, it improved, was smooth, more complex, and finished nicely.

The third sample to go with a bowl of Beef Bourguignon, was Auxey-Duresses Roughe Pinot Noir 12% alcohol. With a medium body, strong fruit continued on the palate. Balanced fruit, medium body, and continued lighter than expected and a long finish.

 

Although we had completed the flight, Charles Denois, Jordane’s Wine Director, also brought us a Domaine Jacques Prieur Bourgogne (2014), with a nice 13% alcohol count, which we enjoyed, said good night and left Heritage.
