The "D Collection" wines are Devaux's very best. The grapes come from highly select, sustainably farmed parcels across 50 hectares.
90% of the base wines are fermented in stainless steel, with 10% fermented in 300 litre barrels. The blend comprises 40% reserve wines, a quarter of which are from two perpetual soleras: a Chardonnay solera and a Cuvée D solera that have been going since 1995 and 2002 respectively. The remaining reserve wines are aged in large oak casks. Following bottling, the liqueur de tirage is added and the wine has a slow second fermentation in bottle and extended ageing on its lees for over 60 months. This results in a wine with a finer, more persistent mousse and greater potential for complexity.
The Cuvée D is rich and intense, with lively acidity bringing balance, freshness and minerality.
