The "Vieilles Vignes" is rich and round with lively, silky bubbles.
Dehours Champagnes are eagerly sought after by champagne enthusiasts for their renowned 'Meunier style'; bold, flavourful and demonstrating a clear terroir-orientated approach.
In 2011 due to bad weather conditions Jerome decided to do an even blend of Pinot Meunier (1/3), Pinot noir (1/3) and Chardonnay (1/3) from his Old Vines on clay soil. This wine goes through full malolactic fermentation and is fully aged on lees, with clarifying taking place by natural settling without filtration or fining.
This blend flows harmoniously with ebullient charisma and charm, the bouquet opens up with fresh warm lemon tart and French baked goods, a hint of balsamic glaze and citrus notes. The palate is rich, pure, with an abundance of zesty citrus and oyster shell salinity. The bubbles are silky and teasing all along.
