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.

Vintage 2011 Lieu-dit La Côte en Bosses A well aged blend of three grape varieties from La Côte en Bosses, a vineyard close to Mareuil-le Port. style: elegant and complex meunier pinot noir chardonnay ,dosage: 0 gr/liter extra brut / brut nature ,cellar aging sur lattes: 7,5 years

Disgorged in July 2019 with two grams per liter dosage after a decade on the lees, Dehours's Pinot Meunier-based 2008 Extra-Brut Lieu-dit Côtes En Bosses is showing very nicely, unwinding in the glass with aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, freshly baked sourdough, citrus oil, blanched almonds and a delicate top note of petrol. Medium to full-bodied, taut and incisive, with fine depth at the core, a racy spine of acidity and a fine, pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a long, penetrating finish. Still tightly wound after disgorgement, this will really reward some time on cork. Wine Advocate 94+ (2008)
