Devaux "Cuvée D" Brut Champagne

SKU #1088804 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Delicate aromas of fresh strawberries, green mango and toasted almonds. The palate is very dry featuring tart, racy acidity, citrusy flavours and a touch of toastiness in the medium to long finish. Drink now. Tasted October 2008.  (11/ 2008)

K&L Notes

This is a very rich, round Champagne with nice toast and weight. Fans of the English style of Champagne will really enjoy the extra maturity of this non-vintage. Champagne Devaux was founded in 1846 and has been owned by the growers who supply it since 1986. It is composed of half and half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and aged for five years on the lees. The reserve wine, which makes up half of the blend is fermented and aged in large oak barrels. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
