Wine Region: Champagne - France
Grape: Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay
Tasting notes: Made from 70% Meunier raised in fuder and the remainder Pinot Noir in stainless steel, the 2014 Champagne Millésime Extra Brut is pretty, with a sweet umami note of shitake broth, red plum, and red flowers. The palate is medium-bodied but powerful in its attack, with wildflowers, herbs, and juicy citrus.
About the winery:
The Dehours' Estate makes wines from the family vineyards, following methods of production that respect biodiversity (Working the ground and allowing grass to grow between the vines). The wines are fully aged on lees and clarified by natural settling without filtration or fining.
Millesime is a Cuvee dedicated to the best wines from each Vintage. Each harvest is different in style, and this Cuvee will be the tribute to each year.
