Description & Technical Information
-
Founded in 1846 by the brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux, today Devaux is owned by the Union Auboise, a co-operative 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.

`Coeur de Nature` is Devaux’s first fully certified organic Champagne. With a low dosage of 5g/l, it expresses the quality and freshness of Pinot Noir from the Côte des Bar and cements Devaux’s position at the forefront of sustainable viticulture in the region. The flagship ‘Collection D’ range uses only the first quarter of the press (the ‘coeur de cuvée’) and is aged for at least five years, contributing to flavour complexity and the integrated mousse. Devaux age most of their reserve wines in oak barrels of different sizes, toasts and ages, which all sourced locally to minimise environmental impact. Intelligent use of oak in Devaux’s wines led Eric Label, Chef de Cave of Krug, to refer to Devaux as “the Krug of the Côte des Bar”.

Vineyards: The grapes are sourced exclusively from certified organic vineyards located across the Côte des Bar. Devaux have been working to convert these vineyards to organic for the last 15 years. Bordering the north of the Côte D’Or and planted on Kimmeridgian chalky marl and limestone soils, sites in Les Riceys contribute structured and complex Pinot Noir. Sites in Neuville sur Seine benefit from the sloped landscape and result in Pinot Noir with excellent ripeness and concentration.

Vinification: Only the first press juice is used and fermented in stainless steel tanks to protect the fruit’s delicate and crisp aromatics. The base wines undergo full malolactic fermentation for well-integrated, but refreshing acidity. 70% of 2019 vintage was blended with 30% of reserve wine prior to bottling. The wine was then aged for a minimum of 24 months on lees with a low dosage of 5g/l to preserve the purest expression of place.

Expert Reviews
92/100
Anne Krebiehl MW
“With an almost pink hue in its straw colour, the wine shows its blanc de noirs nature. The nose is wonderfully fruit-driven, showing notes of Red Delicious apple and ripe, yellow stone fruit. These notions are bedded in a sense of creaminess that continues onto the palate. The body is fresh, crisp and slender, yet shows the generosity and roundness of Champagne’s south while fine, smooth bubbles drive the fruit even further forward. A lovely style that is as suited to aperitif as it is to lighter meals.”

“Dried lemon, green apple, walnut and white strawberry here with salted butter, too. Crisp and bright with fine bubbles. Tangy and vibrant finish. From organically grown grapes. Dry.”
