Description
 
The Dehours estate was founded by Jérôme’s grandfather, Ludovic, in 1930 and was among the first independent growers. Jérôme’s father, Robert, then took over the reins, but unfortunately he passed away when Jérôme was young, and a group of financial partners took control of the business. In 1996 Dehours was able to take the estate back into family hands with a focus on sustainable viticulture and an increasing emphasis on the character of individual terroirs. Today he uses his excellent wines to demonstrate the outstanding potential of Pinot Meunier, which he holds up as the identity of the Marne Valley and of his estate.

Chardonnay vines from the bottom of a gentle slope (1:20), planted between 1966 and 1992. An East orientation with clay soil which has leeched out most of its limestone. Our grandfather, pioneer of grower champagne, saw that this was a perfect plot for champagne and used it for his top of the range wine. About a quarter of the land was replanted in spring 2015. Production methods respect biodiversity (Working the ground and allowing grass to grow between the vines). The wines are fully aged on the lees, in 200L, 300L and 500L barrels and clarified by natural settling, without filtration or fining.

Disgorged in May 2020 with 0.9 grams per liter dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Lieu-Dit Brisefer derives from a perpetual reserve established in 2013—this release therefore incorporates wine from 2013, 2014 and 2015. This east-facing parcel of old vines has delivered fascinating results, unwinding in the glass with complex aromas of pear, orange oil, mint, tangerine, pastry cream and smoke. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and layered, it's deep and enveloping, displaying racy acids and a pillowy mousse, with an elegant profile that doesn't come at the expense of character or intensity.
