Devaux ‘D De Devaux’ La Cuvee NV
30th March 2014
Devaux is a dynamic Champagne house located in the southern part of Champagne. It is one of the biggest vineyard holders in the region, with 1,480 hectares in the Aube and the Côte des Blancs.
This control over its grape supply is a rarity in Champagne, a region where growers traditionally sell to the houses who control the brands. Due to the favourable southerly location of many of its vineyards, Devaux is a Pinot Noir and Rosé specialist.
The Cuvee D wines are Devauxs very best; the grapes are the very best quality from Champagne. The majority of their vineyards are located in the Aube where Pinot Noir is the dominant variety. This location, on the slopes of the Côte des Bars, is important; it gives this variety a lovely Pinot Noir richness on the nose and a long finish, yet retains the finesse.
Some Chardonnay is included in the blend; this is grown on the fine chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs and Vitry to give liveliness and elegance.
