Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
The 2002 shows a complex mix of biscuit and brioche with elegant buttery and toasted note on the nose.
Aromas of candied fruits and nutmeg follow, with some citrus fruits too.
The palate is full flavoured, combining balance of structure, finesse and freshness.
Rich, red Pinot fruit matches the crisp lemon, bergamot and brioche character on the long, scented finish.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 10 years
The House of Devaux was founded in 1846 by brothers Jules and Auguste Devaux. After them Madame Veuve Augusta Devaux, a feisty ‘Champenoise’ took over the company and ran it with energy and talent, and by the end of the 19th century a large proportion of the wine was exported. In 1987 the last Devaux, Jean-Pol Auguste, entrusted the house to the Union Amboise, when he died with no heir, and it has remained a fashionable, elegant and characterful Champagne producer ever since.
Devaux’s ‘D’ wines are their very best; the grapes are the very best quality found in Champagne. Devaux is a Pinot Noir specialist and as such the majority of their vineyards are located in the Aube where Pinot Noir is the dominant variety. The location is important; it gives the variety a lovely richness on the nose and a long finish, yet retains the finesse. Chardonnay is grown on the fine chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs to give liveliness and elegance to the blend.
