- Indigenous yeast from Jerome's own vineyards are used for both fermentation's. 

- Purist organic wine making with 0g/l dosage, no filtration and no fining

- Fantastic when paired with chunks of Parmesan and a Cohiba siglo 6 Habana cigar

This cuvée started off as an experiment 3 years ago when Jerome decided he wanted to make his own yeast. With the help of a local lab, Jerome started cultivating and harvesting yeast from his own vineyard and using it to ferment his wines from start to finish. This is the first time in Champagne history that indigenous yeast are used for both the first and second fermentation.

Through this process not only is Jerome able to express the terroir of his land in a truly unique way, he also brings a new and innovative dimension to the fermentation process. The way Jerome expresses the identity of his terroir is remarkable and makes him without a doubt a pioneer of change in Champagne.

 

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.
