This is a crisp and lively brut Champagne with delicate notes of honeysuckle, stone fruit and toast on the nose. The palate has a refreshing saline edge and mouth-watering acidity, tempered by subtle autolytic notes of biscuit and roasted almond.
Producer Information: Champagne Devaux
Founded in 1846 by the brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux, today
Devaux is owned by the Union Auboise, a co-operative in the
Côte des Bar – the heartland of Pinot Noir in Champagne.
Physically closer to Chablis than Reims or Épernay, the vines grow
on Burgundian soils of Kimmeridgian marl and Portlandian
limestone. Chef de Cave since 1999, Michel Parisot was named
the ‘Sparkling Winemaker of the Year’ at the 2020 International
Wine Challenge – an achievement that is testament to Michel’s
pioneering approach to winemaking.
