Dehours & Fils NV Oeil de Perdrix Rosé Extra Brut
Meunier once again dominates the blend in this strikingly pale wine, though a little Chardonnay adds cut and elegance. Unlike many wines with no dosage, one's first impression here is of sheer deliciousness, and it is only on reflection that one notes the complexity and sense of purpose behind this beauty. Based on 2017, with a balance of 2016 reserve wine. We were allocated 180 bottles.

Notes from the Producer: Oeil de Perdrix is the name given to very pale rosé wines. This blended rosé reveals the Pinot Meunier Character, favorite grape-variety in the Marne Valley area and iconic identity of our vineyard.
