June is the time for trellising: separating the shoots and stapling them to wires. This prevents the leaves from crowding each other, allowing maximum light penetration and also encouraging air circulation that prevents rot.
Trellising is essential for Champagne vines since high-density planting significantly increases trellising is manual labour.
We are more than delighted to share you the latest 2019 results of the U.K. Sommelier Wine Association awards .
Dumenil Grande Réserve Brut NV Rockliffe Hall’s Daniel Jonberger described notes of ‘peach and fresh grass, with a light touch of oak in the background’. ‘Minty, with some ripe stone fruits and apple notes – a good aperitif wine,’ said Tomasz Kuszneruk of Pavilion Wine.
Duménil Amour de Cuvée, Blanc de Noirs, Brut NV ‘Juicy apple and orange zest, along with some lemon curd and white flowers on a delicate palate,’ said team leader Laurent Richet MS.
Duménil Rosé , Brut NV Team leader Jan Konetzki noted ‘a savoury, saline, peachy nose with red berries and yeast. A dry, saline, layered palate; this is good value.’ Meanwhile Raphael Thierry of Street XO found an ‘elegant mousse, charming fresh fruits of peach, strawberry and white cherry, and a fresh finish’.
Producing in the greatest respect for the environment is a duty for a registered designation of origin of great reputation.
Duménil Champagne is now VDC certified.
