DEHOURS & FILS Champagne "Trio S" NV

Wine Region: Champagne - France

Grape: Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay

Tasting notes: Deep and intense, this Cuvee is aged in perpetual reserve (solera) which started in 1998. The wine tells the story of the family estate. Every year they bottle one-third of our reserve wine (some aged in wooden barrels and some in stainless steel) to make Trio S. This volume is replaced by wine from the latest harvest. The young wine brings energy and freshness whilst the older wines bring a sens of the past. The bottling and disgorgement dates are printed on the black label.

About the winery:
Established four generations ago in Cerseuil, a small village on the southern slopes of the valley, the house managed by Jerome Dehours has diversified vintages and styles, from a very fragmented vineyard on both banks of the Marne. Its champagnes of character, mainly built around the miller, offer a balance of tasty juice while playing on the wire of a fine oxidation managed from winemaking in old barrels. The assemblages of the years are particularly well-conducted and the parcel Cuvees reveal a very beautiful definition. Since 1996, Jerome Dehours has given life back to his beautiful 14-hectare estate in the Marne Valley in Champagne. Inspired by the great Anselme Selosse, Jerome started with organically - grown vineyards by way of expressing each of the magnificent terroirs he has at hand. The Domaine predominantly produces Pinot Meunier, a varietal best suited to this cooler area of Champagne, but also Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
