Devaux Grande Reserve NV is a delicious champagne created by blending crus from the Cote des Bar and Cote des Blancs. A wine offering great depth and fruit flavours from the Pinot Noir that work beautifully with the elegance and finesse of very fine chardonnay, it is a recommended buy. The wine has lovely rich aromas of baked apples and vanilla, and on the palate it is full, rounded and well balanced, with a lively, persistent finish.

    CHAMPAGNE BLEND - Champagne Blend refers to one of the world's most distinctive wine styles – the sparkling wines made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot-Meunier that are most famously associated with the Champagne region of northern France. The term, however, has come to evoke wines made in the “methode-traditionnelle” around the world. In the blend Pinot Noir adds structure and brings a certain berry-fruit nose to the blend, while the Chardonnay fleshes this out and sets the wine up for aging, particularly when the base wine is aged in oak.

  • Vineyard

    DEVAUX champagne house was founded in 1846 by brothers, Jules and Auguste. Located in the Côte des Bar, Côte des Blancs and Vitry, the vineyards are spread over 1,500 hectares (3,750 acres) with more than 800 associated wine farmers all contributing top-quality (much of it Premier Cru) grapes to the production of Champagne Devaux. Devaux was run for several decades by Madame Augusta Devaux, one of the select band of widows seeming to hold the key to Champagne during the nineteenth century.
