Description

This Blanc de Blancs is a rarity, for Thevenet-Delouvin are established in a region which is dominated by Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

It’s an elegant cuvee where the Chardonnay expresses superb characteristics thanks to oak ageing.

Thevenet-Delouvin make this Blanc de Blancs in extremely limited quantities.


Presentation of Isabelle et Xavier Thevenet

This is a highly original cuvee as the Chardonnay grows here on heavier earth (vallée de la Marne) than the chalky soils south of Epernay.
The result is a cuvee of grace, length, finesse and elegance where minerality and acidity are understated.
These wines come to maturity early and are above all very typical of their terroir. The Blanc de Blancs that is available now is the 2006 vintage, though it is not mentioned on the label.
The winemaking methods are similar to those used for the Cuvée Prestige, that is : the use of the « têtes de cuvée », and fermentation in stainless steel for part of the wine and in oak barrels for the other part. It is lightly dosed at 6,3g/l.
