Concernant le Champagne Devaux Sténopé 2010
Sténopé vintage 2010 is the result of the meeting between the Champagne and the Vallée du Rhône, between Maison Devaux and Michel Chapoutier. An encounter that gave birth to a rare champagne which faithfully mirrors a single year : 2010.
« Sténos » means « tight/narrow » and echoes the little hole on the wall of a photography black room. This photographic device allows to capture an picture of reality. This is exactly what "Sténopé" is: the best portrait of a season.
Always vintaged, Sténopé is a cuvée elaborated from a blend composed from equal proportions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and raised in oak casks.
Sténopé 2010 is a fresh and unctuous champagne which unveils to the nose a touch of citrus and toasted bread. The palate is fresh and develops aromas of lemon, rhubarb and bergamot, followed by red berries, currant and raspberries. The final is persistent and offers a hint of chocolate and salinity.
You can enjoy this champagne for the aperitif or during the meal.
