TASTING NOTE


This wine is complex, with very fine bubbles,  a creamy mouth-feel, flavours of raspberry, strawberries, some hazelnut notes and a long finish. 

Devaux are Pinot Noir and Rosé specialists. The majority of their vineyards are located in the Aube. This location, on the slopes of the Côte des Bars, is important; it gives Pinot Noir a lovely richness on the nose and finish, yet retains the finesse. Some Chardonnay is included in the blend; this is also grown in the Côte des Bar, with a proportion from the fine chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs to give liveliness and elegance.

Fermented in stainless steel, the traditional method of Rosé production is used, involving the addition of Pinot Noir still wine (14% of the total blend) prior to the second fermentation. The wine undergoes a slow second fermentation in bottle and extended ageing on its lees for 36 months (the legal minimum is 15 months). This gives a finer, more persistent mousse and greater potential for complexity. After disgorgement, the wine receives a Brut dosage of 10g/l. 15% of reserve wines are used in the blend.
