Champagne and Sweet Wines Take Flight at the Heathman

November 30, 2008

Wine flights are offered at The Heathman.
The Heathman Restaurant and Bar in downtown Portland has always been one of the best places in the Northwest to raise a glass of bubbly thanks to its vast Champagne and sparkling-wine cellar. Now, sommelier Jeff Groh has reached deep into that cellar to create a very special Champagne flight, along with several other aptly named Flights of Fancy, just in time for holiday imbibing. The fancy flights include:
  • Celebrated Champagnes: Henriot Blanc Souverain NV, Perrier Jouet Fleur de Champagne 1996, and Dom Perignon 2000. $32
  • Spirit of Espana: Malaga, from the south of Spain, produces one of the world’s great forgotten sweet wines. Three pours of Jorge Ordonez’s Malagas – Old Vines, Seleccion Especial, and Victoria. $17.50
  • Oporto Perspective: This flight features three decades of Port: the 1966 Colheita from Porto Rocha, the 1985 Vintage port from Warre’s, and the Taylor Fladgate 10 year tawny. $29.25
  • Mad about Madeira: This flight celebrates the history of Madeira with Cossart-Gordon 10 year Bual, Rare Wine Company Boston Bual Special Reserve, and Barbeito Malvasia 1954. $17.75
  • A Fine and Noble Rot: Three expressions of Botrytis Cinerea a.k.a. Noble Rot: 2001 Disnoko Tokaji Aszu 4 Puttonyos, 1997 Chateau Rieussec Sauternes and 1999 Chateau Loupiac Gaudiet. $16.25
