Paul Dethune Cuvee a l’Ancienne 2013

12% abv

Vol- 75cl

A tribute to the methods of yesteryear, this wine is the fruit of our estate’s finest practices : 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Chardonnay from a unique year are aged and vinified in 205-liter Champagne oak barrels, then aged for six years in the cellar. Rich, with aromas of almond and nougat, the Cuvée à l’Ancienne serves up a touch of mint on the attack. Both powerful and full-bodied, it offers flavours of candy, dried fruit and beeswax, and reaches an explosive finish, that develops in stages for close to a minute.
Discover a technique used before the wire-cap (1850) : cork and staple closure. Experience the ritual prior to opening the precious beverage by delicately removing the hemp twine using authentic scissors (not included !)
Limited edition of 1,000 bottles.

This wine is prepared without filtration, instead thru natural cooling, alcoholic and malolactic fermentation process in barrels. Dosage 5gr/ l. from Les Crayeres and Les Secs vineyards

The Déthunes started as growers in the early 1800s and began to make their own Champagne in the 1930s. The vineyards are planted in the ratio of 70% Pinot Noir to 30% Chardonnay and are farmed on organic principles – and hold the highest level HEV (High Environmental Value) certificate for sustainable viticulture. The immaculate 7 hectare domaine, Paul Déthune goes from strength to strength. Pierre and Sophie Déthune are friends of the Fournys and this Ambonnay domaine is amongst the loveliest and best cared for in the whole of Champagne.
