An exceptionally fruity extra-brut which lingers well on the palate. Refined, fresh and mineral, enjoy it with a large palter of refined cheeses...you'll be hooked! More info

Jérôme Dehours has produced a Grande Réserve extra Brut of great refinement. After maturing his wine on the lees in the bottle, he leaves it to rest in the cellar for between 15 and 27 months. The predominance of Pinot Meunier gives the wine a very gentle fruitiness. The addition of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir lends it additional complexity and a beautifully fresh mineral structure. This is a champagne that, in order to reveal its full fruity aromatic potential, should not be drunk too cold.

Brut Grand Réserve Dehours & Fils serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Langoustines rôties, Gougères, Fontainebleau.

What the experts say...

"Un brut (base 2013) à dominante de meunier, savoureux, fruité qui s’allonge en douceur en bouche." (RVF)

Information about domain Dehours & Fils

At the head of the Champenoise family home, Jérôme Dehours embodies the 4th generation of a winemaking family located in Cerseuil, a small village on the southern slopes of the Marne Valley. His trademark? Making tasty champagnes from 35-year old, totally divided vines. The 14 hectares (ha) of the domain are spread over 42 different parcels. The exposure, altitude, nature of the soils, the confluence of the Marne and the Flagot valley offer a wide range of soils. Jérôme Dehors grows Pinot Noir (8ha), Chardonnay (4ha) and Pinot Noir (2ha) following sustainable farming methods. This means that he limits mechanical soil work and avoids the use of chemicals. In the cellar, Jérôme Dehours also produces exceptional cuvées in Champagne AOP and Coteaux Champenois, as well as simple champagnes, but these are always succulent. His unique variety of soils means he can vinify each parcel of land separately. His cuvées are mainly undosed or only partly and others are vinified in barriques. Unsurprisingly, his presence in the Marne valley means he can vinify a majority of Pinot Meunier which gives his champagne substance, character, flavour, and fine length on the palate. Jérôme Dehours does not only produce champagnes on his champagne grounds but also wines in AOP Coteaux Champenois. Les Rieux, white wine of the appellation, is made only from Chardonnay grown on the plot of the same name. In the cellars, he ages his wine sur lie for 18 months in 200 and 300 litre barrels.
