Veuve A. Devaux, Brut Grande Réserve Bar-sur-Seine Non Vintage

Devaux Reserve NV

Imported by Adventures in Wine, Daly City, CA.

70% Pinot Noir (all Côte de Bar fruit), 30% Chardonnay (from Côte des Blancs, Côte des Bar and Vitry).  2008 base vintage (raised in stainless steel) with 20% reserve wines (of which half  in raised in wood cask).  Full malo.  Dosage: 9 g/l.

Yellow-gold. Velouté textured and the dosage seems to elevate ’08s floweriness. Toasted beignet, confiture and a honeyed savor. The finish is impeccably dry. Seductive. Now – 2018.
