Tasting | Champagne Benoît Déhu

Champagne Benoît Déhu Rue des Noyers Champagne 2013

Wet, stony, and nutty notes on the nose. Lively and fresh, with a delicious mix of tangy mandarine zest, grapefruit, vanilla, honey, and dark nutty notes, as well as subtle hints of tarragon and menthol in the long finish. Fantastic balance and length. 100% Meunier. No dosage.

Richer and a tad more generous than the 2013 vintage of this champagne. Hints of linden flower on the nose. Creamy and nutty on the palate, joined by notes of pumpernickel and hints of truffle, dried herbs, and musk. Lots of complexity with a lovely length. 100% Meunier. No dosage.

Vinified and aged in oak barrels. Production of 400 bottles only.
