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 the estate's wines apart is the dominance of the Pinot Noir grape in the blend and this particular Champagne is made from 70% Grand Cru Pinot Noir grapes plus 30% Chardonnay - a real 'Champagne-lover's Champagne'.

A delicate straw yellow in the glass. The nose demonstrates mineral infused notes, accentuated by elegant red berry scents and a delicate toasty nuance. On the palate, ripe and generous with fresh red berry and citrus flavours. The finish is dry and refreshing. Makes for a great summer aperitif. Otherwise try with smoked salmon, mature Brie or a bowl of wild strawberries!
