Aromas of white-fleshed and exotic fruits. The palate shows seductive vol-ume and depth. Mellow and fresh, combining full body and finesse. Serve as an aperitif or throughout a meal. Excellent with salads, salmon, chicken, pork, scallops, cream sauces, and vegetarian cuisine.
Exclusively Grand Cru Champagnes created with specific techniques that allow each champagne to naturally express the terroir in its purest form. Low-manipulation, single-village cuvées, only the coeur de cuvée goes in Delavenne's champagnes. A blend of 2 harvest years, the wine is made in stainless steel and enamel tanks (no oak). Wild, native yeasts are used. There is no malo-lactic fermentation or fining and restricted use of sulphur. Dosage is carried out using a liqueur created from a Solera system of Delavenne's own 11 vintage wines and cane sugar from the French Islands.
Champagne Delavenne is a family-run independent house (Recoltant - Manipulant) in Bouzy producing single village (mono-cru) dual-vintage champagnes. Annual production here is just 65,000 to 70,000 bottles annually. 4th generation jean-Christophe Delavenne is now in charge of this award winning estate. The Champagnes are exclusively Grand Cru, low-manipulation, vegan friendly, no Malo. Each Champagne is very pure and very characterful.
