'Disgorged in February 2018 with 5.6 grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Dehours's NV Brut Les Vignes de la Vallée is based on the 2012 vintage. It's showing beautifully, offering up aromas of woodsmoke, crisp yellow orchard fruit, beeswax, citrus oil and fresh pastry. Medium to full-bodied, textural and enveloping, with a pillowy mousse, racy acids and a nicely concentrated core of fruit, it's a vinous, incisive wine that's seamless and charming. Drink 2020-2030.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 92/100 (Mar 2021)

'(55% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir; 7 g/l dosage): Vivid gold. Spice- and mineral-accented orchard fruits on the nose, with a hint of vanilla adding depth. Broad, fleshy pear and white peach flavors are lifted and sharpened by a note of ginger, showing very good clarity and back-end cut. The spicy quality repeats strongly on the incisive finish, which hangs on with mineral-driven tenacity. I'd have guessed that this had a lower dosage, no question.' – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 92/100

'This Cuvée, extra aged on lees, reveals the Pinot Meunier Character, favorite grape-variety in the Marne Valley area and iconic identity of our vineyard. We use a high proportion of Perpetual Reserve started in 1998. Malolactic fermentation completed. Aged in the bottle for 42 to 54 months.' – Winemaker

Producer information Founded in the 1930s, Dehours & Fils is run by the third generation vigneron, Jérôme Dehours. They farm 42 parcels over 14.5 ha split between the villages of Mareuil-la-Port (Montagne de Reims); and Oeuilly, Cerseuil and Troissy (Vallée de la Marne). This area, Vallée de Flagot, named for the small river flowing through the valley to meet the Marne River, has a cool climate. It is perfect for growing Pinot Meunier, the corner stone of Dehours Champagne. As for the style at Dehours, the wines are respectful of the rich and bold flavours of the Pinot Meunier with a vibrant energy the result of a low dosage from brut to extra brut cuvées.
