Concernant le Champagne Devaux Sténopé 2008 Magnum
A fantastic vintage for this elegant magnum, characterized by its great fineness and undeniable aging potential.
This is Sténopé 2008, created by DEVAUX Champagnes and Michel Chapoutier. This encounter gave birth to a daring idea of creating a Champagne that is both rare and full of character: one that would portray the most trust worthy image of a single and unique year. This vision – capturing the very best portrait of a season – is the inspiration behind the name Sténopé.
Always vintage, Sténopé is the result of a precise and unique blend of black and white grapes: Pinot noir and Chardonnay, two emblematic Champagne varieties.
The Cellar Master, Michel PARISOT carefully selects the grapes from his preferred vineyard plots. This same attention to detail is applied during the pressing of the grapes, and the vinification – most of which takes place in barrel, as well as during the delicate “prise de mousse” stage which is followed by a prolonged bottle ageing.
Sténopé 2008 is an inviting Champagne, joyful and flirtatious, surrounded by a unique melody that never leaves the mind. A captivating world to explore. Only 620 magnums were produced. This is the perfect bottle size to keep this superb vintage ...
