2020 International Wine Challenge Sparkling Winemaker of Year award for Michel Parisot of Champagne Devaux.
Founded in 1846 Champagne Devaux is the leading producer from the exciting Côte Des Bar region in Champagnes south. The House is owned by leading growers of the Region after the last member of the Devaux family handed control to the group in 1987 with assurances that the growers would strive for the highest standards and continue the legacy of the House.
Pinot Noir is King in the Côte Des Bar in the Aube (Kimmeridgian limestone-clay soils) as it is warmer and achieves more consistent ripeness hence this variety is prominent in many of the Cuvées and what Devaux refer to as the backbone of the House. They are also a grower for Krug
The D collection is the principle range and showcases the dedication of the House to long ageing before release with a minimum of 5 years for the NV range and 10 years for the Vintage Cuvée. Chef de Cave Michel Parisot has overseen 25 vintages and has an intimate understanding of the region which has seen Champagne Devaux featured on some of the finest wine lists in the World.
Pinot Noir from the Côte des Bar and Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. 55 % Pinot Noir (with 10 % vinified in red) and 45 % Chardonnay and aged for 5 years.
A beautiful apricot salmon pink colour with an elegant mousse and shiny glints. Fresh aromas of small red fruits on the nose, evolving towards floral flavours. Finesse of the intensely fruity palate with delicate notes of redcurrant, raspberry and apricot. The finale is long with beautiful tonicity. Key aromas: redcurrant, raspberry, white fruit.
93 points, James Suckling “This marries strawberry and cherry fruits with subtly complex pastry and grilled nuts to fine affect. The palate has a toast thread that feeds through a long, fleshy and elegant finish. A really polished, great Champagne.”
James Hallidays’ Top 100 Wines “Equal parts of first press (free-run) juice of chardonnay and pinot noir, plus the addition of 10% pinot noir red wine, the wine then spending a minimum of five years on lees. It’s a juicy style, with wild strawberry nuances, and has impressive balance and length.” Nov 2019
91 points, Decanter “This is aged for five years, but sees no oak in order to retain maximum freshness and fruit character. It has a pure red fruit aroma with some creamy lees notes. In the mouth, there’s a dry, savoury edge to the fruit – elegant rather than opulent, with a smear of tannins from the inclusion of a small proportion of red wine. On the finish, some gentle spice is joined by deliciously moreish acidity which displays a lick of lime and a streak of minerality.”
