Champagne Devaux D 2002

Champagne Devaux D 2002

Price: $100

Rating: 15.5/20

Region: Champagne, France

Varietal: 50 percent Pinot Noir & 50 percent Chardonnay

Alcohol: 12 percent

Tasting Notes: Founded in 1846 by two brothers, Jules and Auguste Devaux, the brand remained in the family until 1987. At that time, Jean-Pol Auguste Devaux ensured that the brand would continue by giving it to the Union Auboise, a cooperative of Champagne growers located mostly in the Côtes des Bar. Devaux’s portfolio comprises a variety of Champagnes, including the Classiques, the Collection D and two made entirely from Pinot Noir. The house’s finest offering, the D Millésimé 2002 is composed of equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Aged seven to eight years on the lees and a further six to nine months after dosage, its flavors and textures are firmly integrated. The wine’s creamy mouthfeel reveals soft citrus flavors and hints of almond and toast.

Food Pairings: Scallops, langoustines, rabbit, duck
