The Basic principles

the origins of our champagnes

Much of the quality in all DEVAUX Champagnes is in large part thanks to:

  • parcel selection (for the Collection D range),
  • sustainable vineyard management,
  • technical support and follow-up at each key stage of the season,
  • pressing as close to the vineyard as possible.

 

This quality approach (called "Vineyard Quality Process") applies also in the cellar, where the following principles are observed:

  • ageing of reserve wines (wines from previous harvests) in predominantly oak vats,
  • use of only first press wines (the“cuvée”) in the blend for the Classics and “cœur de cuvée” for the Collection D,
  • extended ageing in the bottle following the“prise de mousse”,
  • labelling by hand for the Sténopé and Collection D special bottles.
