NV Brut Reserve Grand Cru, Delavenne Pere et Fils, Champagne, France


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 Grand Cru Brut Reserve is produced by blending grapes from two specially selected harvests, from plots planted mid-slope in their Bouzy vineyards. The subtle blending of two harvests lends this champagne its wonderful balance that remains consistent from one year to the next. Light yellow with golden highlights. Opens up to notes of white-fleshed and dried fruits. Full body and finesse. Perfectly enjoyable all throughout a meal, whether meat-based or vegetarian.
