Dehours & Fils N.V. "Grande Reserve" Brut

Drawn from the entirety of the estate’s holdings, the idea behind this wine is to exemplify the expression of champagne in the vicinity of the domaine, with an emphasis on the prevalent Meunier grape. Based on 2019, with the balance coming from a solera of reserve wines dating back to 1998, the wine more than meets its remit. There is a tenderness to the fruit that belies the low dosage of 7 gm. and testifies to the fastidiousness of the viticulture and wine-making. We don’t use the word “perfect” lightly, but it is appropriate to a champagne like this that so effortlessly evokes the uniqueness of the genre and delivers it in such a seductive fashion.
