Founded in 1846 Champagne Devaux is the leading producer from the exciting Côte Des Bar region in Champagnes south. The House is owned by leading growers of the Region after the last member of the Devaux family handed control to the group in 1987 with assurances that the growers would strive for the highest standards & continue the legacy of the House.
Pinot Noir is King in the Côte Des Bar & hence this variety is prominent in many of the Cuvées and what Devaux refer to as the backbone of the House. The D collection is the principle range & showcases the dedication of the House to long ageing before release with a minimum of 5 years for the NV range & 10 years for the Vintage Cuvée. Chef de Cave Michel Parisot has overseen 25 vintages & has an intimate understanding of the region which has seen Champagne Devaux featured on some of the finest wine lists in the World.

A sensation of meaty, fullness, and depth reminds the rooting of vines in the terroir of the Côte des Bar. A fruity Champagne with finesse and structure. Key aromas: pear, brioche
