Champagne Benoit Dehu La Rue des NoyersRegular price $93.99
A single plot cuvée made from a single grape variety – 100% Pinot Meunier – vinified in small oak barrel and matured on lees during 11 months. This unfined and unfiltered wine is a champagne without any dosage – a brut nature. The color is a satin golden yellow with pink gold and deep straw-colored glints. The nose is generous with brioche, linden notes and expressing a clay minerality. With aeration, it develops some honey, fruit jelly, and kumquat aromas as well as almond, mocha and vanilla notes. The well-balanced palate offers a generous and creamy effervescence with the same clay minerality and some fruit notes. The finish is expressing a distinct character with a nice viscosity. After 15 min of aeration, it develops buttered, hazelnut notes as well as aromas of honey, prune and quince.
Size: 750mL ABV 12.0%
