Devaux Cuvée Rosée

Côte des Bar, Champagne


  • Gold - Sommelier Wine Awards 2010


Devaux is a boutique Champagne brand located in Bar-sur-Seine in the southerly Aube region of Champagne, some 60km north of Burgundy...

Thanks to this favourable southerly location, Devaux is a Pinot Noir and rosé specialist. The house was founded in 1846, and was family owned for generations. In 1987, in the absence of a family heir, ownership was passed to a united group of winegrower families, known today as the “Groupe Vinicole Champagne Devaux”. Thanks to being owned by these growers, Devaux can boast total control over its grape supply which is a rarity in Champagne, a region where growers traditionally sell to the houses who control the brands.

Devaux are Pinot Noir and Rosé specialists. The majority of their vineyards are located in the Aube. This location, on the slopes of the Côte des Bars, is important; it gives Pinot Noir a lovely richness on the nose and finish, yet retains the finesse. Some Chardonnay is included in the blend; this is also grown in the Côte des Bar, with a proportion from the fine chalky soils of the Côte des Blancs to give liveliness and elegance.


Fermented in stainless steel, the traditional method of Rosé production is used, involving the addition of Pinot Noir still wine (14% of the total blend) prior to the second fermentation. The wine undergoes a slow second fermentation in bottle and extended ageing on its lees for 36 months (the legal minimum is 15 months). This gives a finer, more persistent mousse and greater potential for complexity. After disgorgement, the wine receives a Brut dosage of 10g/l. 15% of reserve wines are used in the blend.

Tasting Notes

This wine is complex, with very fine bubbles,  a creamy mouth-feel, flavours of raspberry, strawberries, some hazelnut notes and a long finish.
