DEHOURS ET FILS Lieux Dit "Maisoncelle" Extra Brut 2008

Tasting notes: It's a powerful and decadent champagne with tense mineral undertones yet with reviving acidity and clear expression of its home.
About the winery : Established four generations ago in Cerseuil, a small village on the southern slopes of the valley, the house managed by JÃ©rÃ´me Dehours has diversified vintages and styles, from a very fragmented vineyard on both banks of the Marne. Its champagnes of character, mainly built around the miller, offer a balance of tasty juice while playing on the wire of a fine oxidation managed from wine making in old barrels. The assemblages of the years are particularly well conducted and the parcel cuvÃ©es reveal a very beautiful definition. Since 1996, JÃ©rome Dehours has given life back to his beautiful 14 hectare estate in the Marne Valley in Champagne. Inspired by the great Anselme Selosse, JÃ©rome started with organically - grown vineyards by way of expressing each of the magnificient terroirs he has at hand. The Domaine predominantly produces Pinot Meunier, a varietal best suited to this cooler aera of Champagne, but also Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
