- Specialist Marne Valley producer using organic treatments in his vineyards 

- A great introduction to grower champagne at a reasonable price

- Pair with grilled prawn with fresh lemon juice 

We are seeing more exciting Meunier dominant wines coming out of champagne and the Dehours estate is carving out immaculate, expressive and mouth-filling examples.

This is fresher and lighter than the Grande Reserve in comparison with some yellow fruit, citrus peel, red apple and juicy acidity to keep the mouth alive. There is a small addition of reserve wine, it is aged in the cellar in barrel for about 20 months and in bottle for a further 18-30 months.

The shorter time on lees, leaves for a fresher, lighter style of wine and with the low addition of only 2 g/l of sugar, this makes for a lifted and clean style. Succumb to the Charm of Meunier, what do you have to lose?

We are excited to introduce this all-new producer to Australia. The Dehours’ Estate makes wines from the family vineyards, following methods of production that respect biodiversity and maximise terroir expression. An example would be, working the soil and allowing grass to grow between the vines. The wines are aged on lees and clarified by natural settling without filtration or fining. Producer Jerome Dehours is a member of the 'Les Artisans du Champagne', which brings together high quality, mostly single estate champagne producers for an annual tasting. Dehours is one of Champagne’s most exciting estates making stylish and expertly crafted wines with a careful approach and excellent quality. We believe there is real creativity and attention to detail in his winemaking for him to develop the complexity from the blending of solera methods with the combined drive to show what Pinot Meunier and single vineyards in the Marne Valley can produce. 

Being lighter on its feet than it's siblings, this would tie in nicely with grilled prawn with fresh lemon juice or a pan-seared white fleshy fish like Barramundi.
