Here is a delicious, multi-award-winning epicurean Champagne from an illustrious and historic Champagne House. It is elegant and delicious—and at the exclusive Club Members’ price of just over £29 a bottle delivered, won’t break the bank! Eric Label, Chef de Cave of Krug, referred to Devaux as ‘the Krug of the Côte des Bar’—high praise.
Devaux Grande Reserve is one of our Tasting Panel’s favourite Champagnes—it is a top-notch match with caviar, with black truffles, foie gras and many other foods, as well as being a fine aperitif. It really should be your own House Champagne!
A Pinot Noir dominant Brut Champagne, aged three years, Grande Réserve is a gold yellow colour giving floral perfumes with hints of stone fruit such as peach and apricot on the nose. Its refined, intense and complex palate finishes with touch of yellow plum.
Founded in 1846 by the brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux, today Devaux is owned by the Union Auboise, a co-operative in the Côte des Bar—the heartland of Pinot Noir in Champagne. Physically closer to Chablis than Reims or Épernay, the vines grow on Burgundian soils of Kimmeridgian marl and Portlandian limestone. Chef de Cave since 1999, Michel Parisot was named the ‘Sparkling Winemaker of the Year’ at the 2020 International Wine Challenge—an achievement that is testament to Michel’s pioneering approach to winemaking.
The Club Tasting Panel highly recommend this delicious Champagne to Members—and i you already know Devaux Champagne you will be delighted to see it at this excellent shippers’ price!
