Know Your ChampagneThe Champagne region is one of the most exciting today, with a bevy of small producers creating flavours giving a greater expression of style and place.A prime focus - and a personal passion - are the members of an elite group of grower-producers known as the 'Club Trésors de Champagne' or 'Special Club', which was founded in 1971. Currently consisting of 28 producers, all member wines undergo a rigorous selection before release and are the pinnacle of what they can produce.To become a 'Special Club' release requires the absolute best and is a guarantee of excellence. There are good Champagnes... There are great Champagnes... And then there is the Special Club. Find out more here Product DetailsThe house of Duménil was founded in 1874 by Elie and Cécile Duménil. Today, the great-granddaughter of the founders, Frédérique Poret-Rebeyrolle, presides over the house with her husband Hugues Poret. Her father taught her the respect for the traditions of the Champagne region: know-how and love for the terroir. She maintains the search for perfection and truth which has always been a strong guiding principle for the Duménil family.Both coming from winemakers’ families, Frédérique and Hugues deeply love the earth and the job handed down to them by their ancestors. Hugues is in charge of the vineyards and cellar work, with the support of 4 wine workers. Frédérique, assisted by her mother, Mrs Rebeyrolle and Audrey Cauet, is in charge of the marketing but also part of the winemaking process.The beautiful reception area and tasting rooms in Chigny-les-Roses is a must-visit when in the region, while their actual cellar and production facilities are situated in the neighbouring village of Sacy. The family owns 8 hectares of vines divided up into 45 parcels in 3 Premier Cru villages: Chigny-les-Roses, Ludes and Rilly-la-Montagne. Some of the plantings are more than 30 years old, offering very low yields but wonderful depth and complexity, in particular to the ‘Vieille Vigne’ blends. All the vineyards are managed with sustainable viticultural techniques, aiming to limit interventions; natural products are used in order to avoid systemic treatments, and greater attention is paid to the vines’ specific needs in regards to disease prevention. Duménil became a member of the Special Club in 2012 and we eagerly await the first release, which is expected April 2016. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of their range as it is entirely exemplary. I was unfamiliar with the house before visiting, but was mesmerised by the consistency and quality of all their cuvées. They also use an unusually high percentage of reserve wines in the blends, with an impressive 50% being used in their Brut NV. Duménil is a terrific producer that deserves wider recognition. DescriptionCan't decide? Why not treat yourself to 6 of the finest from Dumenil Champagnes...What David has to say...When visiting Duménil I was unfamiliar with the house except for the fact that they had recently become members of the ‘Special Club’. Although their debut ‘Club’ release is still a few years away I was floored by the overall quality of every cuvée. They are one of the most impressive producers I have come across and I urge everyone to try their range. It becomes obvious why they were invited to become a member of the Club!Grande Reserve Premier Cru NV ‘Grande Reserve’ is a very apt name as the base wine is from 2010 but contains 50% reserve wines from an ongoing solera system. These reserves give complexity and depth which sets it apart from other Brut NVs. Only the first pressing is used and it is an equal blend of all three varieties. Lifted white floral and fruit notes, with hints of freshly baked bread and brioche following through on the palate. The body and fruitiness of the Pinots combine with the finesse and precision of the Chardonnay, all sourced from Premier Crus in the Montagne de Reims.Rose Vieilles Vignes Premier Cru NV This is a unique Rosé Champagne combining fruitiness and elegance using an equal blend of all three varieties. The colour is achieved by the addition of 7% red wine from old Meunier vines planted in 1956, aged in oak. Only the first pressing is used with the base wine coming from 2011 and the addition of 50% reserve wines. These reserves allow the wine to achieve its very high quality consistently every year. The average age of the wines is a commendable 30 years and all from Premier Crus.Brut Vintage 2005 The 2005 vintage is a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. It exhibits a pale, white gold colour and lifted, fresh, white floral notes with some toasty, crème brûlée and ginger edges. The palate comes as quite a surprise; remarkable freshness which is countered by a layered complexity, texture and mouthfeel. This is one of the best 2005s we’ve come across and a commendable effort. Impressive.Cuvee Prestige Vieilles Vignes NV The fruit is sourced from Dumenil’s oldest vineyard, ‘les Pêcherines’, which was planted in Ludes in 1969. It is composed of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir with base wine coming from the brilliant 2008 vintage. It is pale gold in colour, and the nose shows hints of exotic fruits, nuts and smoky aromas. It boasts a rich, generous palate with layered exotic flavours, spice, grilled nuts and a toastiness on the finish. Superb.Amour de Cuvee Blanc de Noirs NV This is a 50/50 blend of Premier Cru Pinots from the Montagne de Reims. Possessing a pale golden colour, the nose reveals red berries, dried fruit and grilled almonds. Elegant and fine, the flavours build on the palate. Lovely red fruit characters, with a marvellous balance between succulence and lively, fresh acidity. The silky texture builds with a long, spicy finish. Amour de Cuvée is a Champagne with flesh, and it will certainly cast its spells on you…Brut Nature Millesime 2002 This Brut Nature is a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. It was designed for champagne purists; lovers of wines without make-up. Pale gold in colour, the nose reveals jasmine and white floral notes along with exotic fruits and grilled aromas. The palate is rich, full and round yet possessing a remarkable freshness and purity. The wonderful balance and character of the 2002 vintage shines through. This is a truly lovely wine which shows that when the fruit is of an exceptional quality, dosage is simply not necessary.$490 normally – Special 6-pack offer – Just $385Additional InformationVintageVariousRegionChampagneAlcohol Vol12 - 14%Volume750mLCase Size6 Bottles PaymentIf paying by bank deposit, please leave your ebay username in the description so that your payment may be readily identified.
