What to expect


Dehours Champagnes are eagerly sought after by champagne enthusiasts for their renowned ‘Meunier style’; bold, flavourful and demonstrating a clear terroir-orientated approach.

Upon tasting, you’ll understand how the characteristics of the Pinot Meunier grape have become inextricably linked to the identity of this iconic vineyard. The “Trio S” cuvée showcases the history of Champagne Dehours in a bottle. Sourced exclusively from the perpetual reserve started in 1998, this wine is deeply rich with a bouquet of ripe pear and apple, dry leaves, subtle black tea and baked French baguette laced in mineral tones.

The beautiful density on the palate is silky, delicate and lifted by sensational tiny bubbles. Drink now in a big white wine glass – Brut – Dosage 7g/l.

The Solera method removes 30% of wine each year and is replaced with new wine. The blend is 60% Meunier 35% Chardonnay 5% Pinot noir – the field blend.  Lovely mature notes and very gentle effect of oak.  Not raw, virbrant and beautiful.  Some kept in vat, some in oak.

About the house

About the house


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.    Food suggestion
