Since 1996, Jérome Dehours has given life back to this beautiful 14 hectare estate in the Marne Valley in Champagne. Inspired by the great Anselme Selosse, Jérome started with organically-grown vineyards by way of expressing each of the magnificent terroirs he has at hand. The Domaine predominantly produces Pinot Meunier, a varietal best suited to this cooler area of Champagne, but also Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Champagne connoisseurs seek out the Dehours Champagnes to find the renowned Meunier style; bold and flavourful with a clear terroir-orientated approach.

Tasting Notes

Blend of 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 vintages. Disgorged June 2018

The “Brisefer” Extra Brut is from a vineyard planted entirely to chardonnay, from the bottom of a gentle slope, planted between 1966 and 1992. The vineyard is east facing with clay soil which has leeched out most of its limestone. Our grandfather, pioneer of grower champagne, saw that this was a perfect plot for champagne and used it for his top of the range wine. The wine goes through full malo and fully aged on the lees, in 200L, 300L and 500L barrels and clarified by natural settling, without filtration or fining.
