CHAMPAGNE DEHOURS - GRANDE RÉSERVE BRUT NV - $82:
The "Grande Réserve" is rich, fruity with silky mouthfeel. The Domaine predominantly produces Pinot Meunier in addition to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Pinot Meunier varietal is best suited to this cooler area of Champagne and is a favourite of the Marne Valley. Dehours Champagnes are eagerly sought by champagne enthusiasts for their renowned 'Meunier style'; bold, flavourful and showing 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 wines are fully aged on lees, clarified by natural decanting and without filtration or fining. Their Cuvée is extra aged on lees and reveals the character of Pinot Meunier grapes wonderfully. A high proportion of reserve wine comes from a Solera started in 1998. The final mix is aged in the bottle for 15 to 27 months. Brut – Dosage: 6 g/l.
