The house was founded in 1966 by Jean-Paul Deville and is situated in the centre of the village of Verzy, just 20km south east of the Champagne capital, Reims. Since Jean-Paul's untimely death in 2013 the estate has been run by his wife Marie-Alice and his 4 sons who continue the family tradition of producing excellent Champagnes. What sets Jean-Paul's wines apart is the dominance of the Pinot Noir grape in the blend and this particular rose is made from predominantly Grand Cru Pinot Noir grapes and therefore represents fantastic value for money. This makes for an ideal aperitif and is a big JBW seller.
A vibrant salmon-pink in colour. The mousse is persistent and lasting. On the nose aromas of summer red fruits leading to a refreshing and floral palate of cherries, blood orange and candied flowers. A very polished and well balanced fizz. Drink with fresh tuna sushi, fricassee of chicken and lobster with spring vegetables or escalope of salmon served on a bed of watercress and baby spinach.
