Benoît Déhu - Champagne Extra Brut Cuvée De Initiation NV
After a tenure at the famed Bollinger estate, Benoît Déhu returned to his family’s historic pre-French Revolution estate to take over as it’s eighth generation winemaker. With a passion for natural viticulture, his biodynamic approach leads to absolutely stunning sparkling wine.
Made with a blend of Pinot Noir and Déhu’s famed Pinot Meunier crop and aged in oak barrels- many of which are made from trees in the surrounding forests of Fossoy- this Cuvée De Initiation pops with notes of apricot, pear, and dried flowers. Soft, creamy and round that finishes with a refreshing zip, begging for another taste.
