About the Producer
Founded in 1846 by the brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux, today Devaux is owned by the Union Auboise in the Côte des Bar – the heartland of Pinot Noir in Champagne. Physically closer to Chablis than Reims or Épernay, the vines grow on Burgundian soils of Kimmeridgian marl and Portlandian limestone. Chef de Cave since 1999, Michel Parisot was named the ‘Sparkling Winemaker of the Year’ at the 2020 International Wine Challenge – an achievement that is testament to Michel’s pioneering approach to winemaking.
Vineyard and Winery
Devaux are Pinot Noir and Rosé specialists. The majority of their vineyards are located in the Aube. This location, on the slopes of the Côte des Bars, is important; it gives Pinot Noir a lovely richness on the nose and finish, yet retains the finesse. Some Chardonnay is included in the blend; this is also grown in the Côte des Bar, with a proportion from the fine chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs to give liveliness and elegance.
Fermented in stainless steel, the traditional method of Rosé production is used, involving the addition of Pinot Noir still wine (14% of the total blend) prior to the second fermentation. The wine undergoes a slow second fermentation in bottle and extended ageing on its lees for 36 months (the legal minimum is 15 months). This gives a finer, more persistent mousse and greater potential for complexity. After disgorgement, the wine receives a Brut dosage of 9g/l. 15% of reserve wines are used in the blend.
