Dom Pérignon Vintage 2013
Come Quickly, We’re Tasting the Stars
In this edition of The Weekend Edit, we’re pinkies out as we train our lens on the wonderful, effervescent world of Champagne. To celebrate Dorsia’s recently launched collaboration with Dom Pérignon, in which members can secure reservations with a bottle of the Vintage 2013, we asked the sommeliers at four participating restaurants in New York and Miami to recommend the perfect dish pairings. Plus we look back on the maison’s storied heritage and pen a love letter to the 2013 Vintage, which endured a wild year of weather and emerged as one of the Champagne house’s preeminent expressions.
Listening Room: Chef Justin Pichetrungsi
Meet The Makers: Erin Hupp
The Oakland-based ceramicist imbues plateware with organic and sensorial qualities for restaurants such as Pasta Bar and Hilda and Jesse. Here, she tells us about her minimalist collections for San Francisco’s Michelin-starred Sons & Daughters.
I use textured surfaces and glazes that invite guests to touch my ceramics and interact with the plate or bowl holding their meal. My inspiration is texture: natural oak bark, colorful eucalyptus tree trunks, and caked mud on my hikes in the Redwoods, and food like tuile or frothed cream.
Piece you wish you could take home:
My latest collection for the restaurant includes Alabaster ribbed broth cups and an accompanying ribbed pourer. I was so fond of how they turned out that I made a separate set for my home. At the restaurant, Chef Harrison presents them tableside atop handmade wooden trays made by local maker Morlock Woodworks for a special welcome drink.
