2016 Blanc de Blanc Grand Cru, Delavenne Pere et Fils, Champagne, France

F135706NV1 

Based in Bouzy, a 100% certified Grand Cru village, Champagne Delavenne is an independent, 4th generation, family owned champagne house making organic, low sulphur, vegan friendly and award winning champagnes. Quite a rarity in Champagne, the Delavenne family are what is known as recoltants-manipulants, meaning they own and work their land, and only make champagne from the grapes they grow, so vigneron Jean-Christophe has complete control from start to finish.


Last year our Tasting Room Manager Ellie went off to see for herself and came back singing their praises to the heavens and back. We are delighted her enthusiasm has born fruit and we are now stocking their entire range.


A single village, single harvest 2016 Blanc de Blancs is produced with Chardonnay grapes from the Grand Cru vineyards in Cramant, on a slope in the Côte des Blancs. Delicate aromas of fresh fruit and citrus in great harmony and balance. Try it as a generous accompaniment to fish and seafood, and with fried chicken or clams.
