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.

100% Pinot Meunier from the La Croix Joly lieu-dit; the vines were planted in the early 1970s. Fermented and matured in barrels. “Croix Joly is the most influenced by sun- there’s more afternoon sun here, while Les Genevraux has a little more morning sun.”
