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 2015, 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 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.

Notes from the Producer: This is our historical and main cuvée. We use 30% of our Reserve wine, started in 1998, and refreshed every year with the new vintage by 1/3.
This is a way to maintain a consistent style, quality and volume year after year.
