Re: White wine recs:

Good points have been made. If you want white Burgundy, buy white Burgundy (hell, if you want Chardonnay, buy white Burgundy). But if you want something equally complex, structured, terroir-driven and ageworthy, buy grower Champagne from the likes of Cédric Bouchard and David Léclapart, Loire Chenin...

Grey and brown aromas

I remember once reading an interview in which you explained how Dom Perignon is made in a deliberately slightly reductive style, bringing forward "grey"(reductive) aromas and avoiding "brown"(oxidative) aromas. Is your intention that Dom Perignon should be drunk with these reductive aromas intact or...
