The Cuvee ‘D’ wines are Devaux’s very best; the grapes are the very best quality from Champagne and so growers who qualify for this high level are paid accordingly. Devaux are Pinot Noir specialists. The majority of their vineyards are located in the Aube where Pinot Noir is the dominant variety. This location, on the slopes of the Côte des Bars, is important; it gives this variety a lovely Pinot Noir richness on the nose and a long finish, yet retains the finesse. Some Chardonnay is included in the blend; this is grown on the fine chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs and Vitry to give liveliness and elegance.
The NV ‘Cuvee D’ is rich and sleek and is, in Anthony Rose’s words, a ‘luxuriously toasty, creamy number.’ The Pinot Noir gives body and length to the wine, while the Chardonnay adds elegance and finesse.
