A very fine floral nose; elegant lightly honeyed toasty peach fruits on the palate, and very good length. Delicious wine.
I posted a blog on a Vin Clair tasting held by Devaux last week. Devaux market two entirely different ranges of Champagne, the ‘D’ being the higher quality. I came away with a new respect for their wines; there were some seriously good Champagnes, the Cuvée D and the Ultra D extra-brut in particular. All of this range are aged for a minimum of five years before release. The Cuvée D has a low dose, around 7 g/l, of residual sugar.
