Veuve A. Devaux 'D de Devaux' Champagne France 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Devaux is the brand bought and developed by the Union Auboise. It is a dynamic co-operative located in the southern part of Champagne, and is one of the biggest vineyard holders in the region, with 1450 ha of vineyard in the Aube & the Cote des Blancs. Devaux’s control over its grape supply is a rarity in Champagne, as few producers have such control. The co-op has contracts with a number of top houses in Champagne, and is able to reserve its best grapes for its own wines. The quality of the wines illustrates why Tom Stevenson, the UK’s leading writer on Champagne, listed Devaux as one of his top 10 fastest improving producers in Decanter magazine. The wine has a lovely Pinot Noir richness on the nose, with aromas of baked apples and vanilla. On the palate, it is full, rounded, and well balanced, with a lively, persistent finish. The nose presents fresh notes of white flowers, apricot and dried fruits, developing to toasty notes and hazelnuts which show the age of the wine. The palate is amazingly fresh and extremely fine. The finish shows some good maturity with toasty brioche.
