CHAMPAGNE BRUT VINTAGE 2011
GRAPE VARIETY
Pinot Noir e Chardonnay
TASTING NOTES
The idea is to create a Champagne that is rare and full of character, and that represents the clear and crisp image of the vintage. This vision, which is to capture the best portrait of a season, is the reason for its name. Sténopé is the result of a precise and unique blend of black and white grapes: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, two emblematic varieties of Champagne. Michel Parisot, Chef de Cave of the Maison Devaux, carefully selects grapes from his favorite vineyard plots. The same attention to detail is applied during the pressing of the grapes and the vinification, most of which takes place in the barrel, as well as during the delicate phase of the second fermentation, which is followed by a prolonged refinement in the bottle. The challenge is, harvest after harvest, to interpret a season, with all its unique characteristics that manifest themselves over time and, with a sip, to accompany each person on a journey of the senses, in the heart of that special year. The 2011 vintage began in the name of contrasts: a harsh and dry winter followed by a temperate spring with late frosts in April. The summer was initially very hot and then ended with cooler temperatures. A sunny and warm September lead to the optimal ripening of the grapes. Stenopè 2011 has an intense gold color with straw-yellow reflections. Fine and elegant aromas of white fruit, hazelnut, vanilla and toast. On the final dehydrated apricot and sugared almonds. Fresh on opening, the palate pleasantly evolves towards notes of lemon peel and white fruit. Excellent persistence. Key aromas: white peach, citrus, pastry.
DOSAGE: 4g/l

Devaux

Devaux Discover the Maison Devaux and its fine Champagne in our online store The Devaux's family story began in the mid-19th century with the brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux and continued with three women who share a similar destiny and strong entrepreneurial skills. Madame Claude-Joseph Devaux , after being widowed in 1843 at the age of 39, takes over the reins of "Maison Vve A. Devaux" and run it together with her son François-Auguste. The second symbolic woman, Augusta-Maria Herbin , wife of François-Auguste, after her husband's death in 1879, led the company until 1895. In 1907, Auguste's son died prematurely and that's how the last protagonist of this particular story enters the scene: Marguerite Marie-Louise , the third “widow Devaux”. For more than a century, the brand remains the property of the founding family. In 1987 the descendant, Jean-Paul Auguste Devaux, having no children, decided to hand over the future of the brand to Laurent Gillet , president of the "Union Auboise" , today  “Groupe Vinicole Champagne DEVAUX” . Currently the headquarters and the production site are located in Hameau de Villeneuve , in an 18th century mansion on the banks of the Seine that has been perfectly restored to its original splendor. Sustainable management of the vineyards, technical support and follow-up at every stage of the season and pressing as close as possible to the vineyard are the strengths of the Champagne Devaux. This approach to quality is also applied in the cellar, where the aging of reserve wines takes place in mainly oak vats. The pressing wines are chosen for the Classics and for the Collection D , the spearhead of the production. The annual production stands at 650,000 bottles in total .
