DEVAUX & M. CHAPOUTIER Champagne Brut "Stenope" 2008
Wine Region: Champagne - France
Grape: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Tasting Notes: In appearance it's red, purple, dense, clear with deep purple glints. The nose is pure indulgence with vanilla, brioche, warm bread, praline... but also lemon, zest and candied. On the palate, it is fresh and refined with lemon, bergamot, citrus zest and toast balance with beautiful tension. The finish is long, with chocolate notes.
About the winery : It all began with a meeting between Champagne and the Rhone Valley, around shared values of open-mindedness and respect for terroir. This encounter gave birth to a daring idea of creating a Champagne that is both rare and full of character: one that would portray the most trustworthy image of a single and unique year. This visions-capturing the very best portrait of a season - is the inspiration behind the name Stenope.
