1.5 hectare single parcel of Pinot Noir on clay limestone with sand. Aged in barrel, then 34 months in bottle.
"After a defining period at Champagne Bollinger, eighth generation Benoit Déhu returned to his family’s historic (pre-French Revolution) estate on the western edge of the Vallée de la Marne.
With a vision toward natural viticulture and a desire to deeply understand the potential of the Meunier grape, Benoit roped off a 1.7 hectare parcel known as “La Rue des Noyers”, which he farms biodynamically and partially ploughs with a horse. From this parcel he makes a Champagne and a Coteaux Champenois white and red, all made from 100% Meunier.
Wines are fermented and aged in oak barrels, many of which are made from trees in the nearby forest of Fossoy. The resulting wines are intense and vibrant with a driving minerality.
