Now just right in its maturity, this wine reflects the rich style of the house, offering white fruits, balanced acidity and minerality. Densely textured, ripe and well balanced, the wine is ready to drink.

Effectively a Blanc de Noirs, made entirely from red-skinned grapes, this is a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The wine was aged for five years on its lees before release, giving it a rich, full character that is just right. With maturing ripe white-fruit flavors, the wine is ready to drink.

June : what’s happening in the vineyard?

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.

UK Sommelier On Trade Awards 2019

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’.
