Producer: Union Auboise
Devaux is produced by the dynamic co-operative, Union Auboise, located in the southern part of Champagne, and is one of the biggest vineyard holders in the region with 1450 ha of vineyard in the Aube & the Cote des Blancs. Devaux’s control over its grape supply is a rarity in Champagne, as few producers have such control. The co-op has contracts with a number of top houses in Champagne, and is able to reserve its best grapes for its own wines. The quality of the wines illustrates why Tom Stevenson, the UK’s leading writer on Champagne, listed Devaux as one of his top 10 fastest improving producers in Decanter magazine. The wine has a persistent mousse of very fine bubbles, and a nutty, toasty, caramel character. The Pinot Noir gives body and length to the wine offering red fruit notes and peach, while the Chardonnay adds elegance and finesse. Can be kept up to 5 years.
