Concernant le Champagne Devaux Sténopé 2011
Sténopé vintage 2011 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 : 2011.
« 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 2011 is a great cuvée and already mature which unveils aromas of hazelnuts, vanilla, toast and dried apricot. The palate offers light lemon zest touches, together with white fruits and pear. The final is tonic and of a great length, with iodized notes. A champagne aimed to the connoisseurs !
You can enjoy this delicate cuvée with oysters or sweetbreads. It is also delicious with scallops accompanied by caviar and watercress emulsion.
