Devaux Blanc de Noirs
Devaux nos sorprende con este Blanc de noirs que ofrece mucha calidad para el precio que tiene y que se presta para ser el protagonista indiscutible en grandes festines por su perfil gastronómico. Elaborado en su totalidad con Pinot noir de la Côte des Bar. Equilibrado de principio a fin, si se pudiera comparar con música sería una ópera de Verdi.

Opinión de los críticos
Devaux's NV Blanc de Noirs Brut is a clear, bright and aromatic Champagne based on 100% Pinot Noir. Very pure but intensely aromatic and concentrated on the nose, this is a full-bodied, round, complex and persistent cuvée with good freshness and grip in the pure, powerful and structured finish. The mousse is very fine and coats the whole palate, leaving some grip and salinity. The (unknown) dosage is a bit too high for my personal taste. I tasted this Brut in November 2017 but received the sample in December 2015, so the disgorgement could be from early 2015.
Strong suit for Devaux. Toasty, woody elements with mushroomy overtones. The blueberry and red berry pastry flavors hold long and convincing. Drinking very well now.
This wine is rich, packed with red and citrus fruits and with a taut, nervy texture. A recent bottling, it needs to age to bring out the ripe fruits and calm the acidity. Then it will be a full wine, lightly structured and delicious.
Elegant and inviting aromas of plush peach and quince lead on to a toasty palate laced with red apple and bright citrus.
