'The NV Extra Brut Oeil de Perdrix is a Meunier-based Rosé, all from the 2017 harvest. Translucent and yet deceptive in its richness, the Oeil de Perdrix has a lot going on. Orange peel, spice, rose petal and sweet red cherry fruit are all nicely lifted. Oeil de Perdrix is a beautiful, expressive Champagne, but it only truly blossoms with a few hours of air. The zero dosage style is especially felt on the clean, bracing finish. Bottled with no dosage. Disgorged: July, 2019. Drink 2020-2025.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 93/100 (Nov 2020)

'Disgorged in July 2019 without dosage, Dehours's NV Extra-Brut Oeil de Perdrix is showing nicely, unwinding in the glass with scents of raspberries, fresh peach and mandarin oil. Medium to full-bodied, taut and incisive, it's tightly wound, with racy acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse. There's less flesh on the wine's structural bones here than in last year's disgorgement, but it should unwind nicely with time in the cellar. Drink 2022-2032.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 90+/100 (Mar 2021)

'Oeil de Perdrix is the name given to very pale rosé wines. This blended rosé reveals the Pinot Meunier Character, favorite grape-variety in the Marne Valley area and iconic identity of our vineyard. This is a fresh and fruity Rosé.' – 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.
