13th December 2017


Congratulations to Champagne Delavenne Pere & Fils with their Grand Cru Brut Nature which received a Gold medal at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.

A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as Gastronomic: “A wine which has enough body and spicy character to cope with all dining experiences from starts to main course to include meat and vegetarian dishes.

“We are récoltants-manipulants. This is a classification for Champagne producers who only vinify, make and market champagne from their own grapes.” Quote from website

I have had the great pleasure to visit this winery and meet with Jean-Christophe Delevanne who is the latest wine-maker and fourth generation of the family Delavenne that have been making Champagne since 1884. I was very much wow’d by their fine selection of Champagne.” Christopher Walkey

The Brut Nature is created without added sugar. The purest expression of the terroir in Bouzy 100% Grand Cru in the Montagne de Reims. Sun-soaked chalk soils and hillsides, bordered by forest and caressed by cool evening winds providing natural thermal regulation for optimal growing conditions.
