What to expect


Cuvee D is a cut above the rest of the Devaux range. All the pinot noir is proudly sourced from the Cotes des Bar comprising 60% of the blend, with the balance being chardonnay and no meunier. It has spent 5 years in the cellar in addition to the very rich addition of solera aged reserve wines at 40% spanning 2002-2011. Expect soft, round and plush pinot flavours with less acidity than say a blanc de blancs, but more body and depth. Fruits here are red fig, stewed apple and caramel notes.

About the house

About the house


Food suggestion

Founded in 1846 by brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux, the house was then managed by three inspiring women who led the family winery with remarkable energy and talent in equal measure. Devaux is located in the far south of Champagne in an area known as the Cotes des Bar, where big luscious pinot noir fruit is the hero. Approximately 100 hectares of their huge land holding is dedicated to making the house champagne of Devaux, with the remaining fruit sold to other producers. This champagne is a fabulous start if you are taking the first step to move away from the grand-marque, big-brands that you have bought for many years. It is a really well produced range of wines which will totally satisfy your guests at a soiree.

Food suggestion


There is real power in the pinot coming from the Cotes des Bar, which can handle some richer and more exotic flavours. Try Middle Eastern spiced duck liver paté with pomegranate and fresh fig.
