Champagne from Devaux

Founded in 1846 by the brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux, it was subsequently taken over by Madame Augusta Devaux, one of Champagne’s great characters, who ran the company with great energy and skill. The leap forward in quality that she had initiated led to the company being renamed Maison Veuve A.

Devaux is a Pinot Noir specialist and their vineyards in the heart of the Côte des Bar, in the south of the Champagne region, produce some of the best Pinot Noir in the whole appellation.

The Devaux Champagnes are full and expressive yet elegant and refreshing. Only the initial, lightly-pressed juice (the cuvée) is used. The ‘Classiques’ Champagnes are aged on their lees for at least three years (twice the minimum dictated by Champagne law) and the flagship ‘Collection D’ range for at least five years, which contributes to their complexity of flavour and integrated, fine mousse.

The ‘Cuvée D’ comprises a minimum of 35% reserve wines and is aged in large oak casks.

 The 2008 is the first vintage of the Sténopé, a collaboration between Michel Parisot from Devaux and Michel Chapoutier, the renowned winemaker from the Rhône Valley. Sharing the same philosophy about vineyards and respect for the land, they decided to create an exceptional Champagne that take a snapshot of a particular vintage as a faithful representation of it, hence the name which means ‘pinhole camera’ in French. Sténopé will be made every year from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir carefully selected by Michel Parisot among his preferred plots. It is made in very limited quantities and is already considered as a collector’s wine.

Vineyards The "D Collection" wines are Devaux's very best. The majority of the vineyards are situated in the Aube on Kimmeridgian limestone-clay soils. This continental location, on the slopes of the Côte des Bars, is important; it gives the Pinot Noir richness on the nose...
