• Paul Dethune Grand Cru Brut Champagne
This "Grower Champagne" is made up of half and half the 2010 vintage and reserves stretching back to 1990. The final assemblage was 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, aged on its lees for over 40 months. The nose shows a more present style with stone fruits, cream, white raspberries, red apple skins, and just there spice. The palate is full and present with cream, white raspberries, clove and just there minerality. Make this the star of a dinner party with prime rib. D&M Tasting Notes

From the very heart of Champagne with a 400 year lineage to boot: Paul Dethune. The Dethune family got its start in the village of Ambonnay in 1610, the same year Galileo Galilei discovered the first three moons of Jupiter and Louis XIII took the throne of France. This makes them one of the founding families of Ambonnay and older than all but the Gosset Champagne house. Fast forward to today and Pierre Dethune and his wife Sophie work at the vanguard of Champagne, both environmentally and socially. They installed solar and rain capture in 1999, and own 17.3 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay all within the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay which they farm biodynamically. They have undergone the High Environmental Value certification, quite a feat for a small grower. Michael Kennel, D&M Winebuyer
