- A blend of pinot noir and meunier from Benoît Déhu

- Sultry, silky and full-bodied style of champagne. Bollinger-esque.

- Pair with bistro inspired flavours, especially a charred burger and pomme frites

Cuvée Initiation is the newest addition to the Déhu lineup. Made from Pinot Noir and his signature variety Pinot Meunier, which Benoît planted using massale selection of Pommard clone from Burgundy. The wines is fresh yet round with a persistent finish. We love the waves of dark red fruit and smoky deliciousness.

Benoit is an eighth generation vigneron that returned to the family estate after working for Bollinger. He is committed to natural farming and aims to craft unadultered, pure Pinot Meunier. He purchased this 1.7 hectare vineyard and farms it biodynamically. The results are exceptional and we are thrilled to introduce Benoit's work to our dedicated champagne lovers. The Cuvee 'La Rue de Noyers', named for the walnut trees that line the parcel, is a wine that will keep you intrigued and coming back for more. - Doug Polaner
