Gilbert & Gaillard “Light yellow. Endearing fruity nose intermixing red fruits and white-fleshed fruits. More of the predominant fruit aromatics on the palate which is fleshy on the attack and lively mid-palate. A perfumed, fresh dry Champagne for the aperitif or parties.”
Vigerons Independents de France

Made from 60% reserve wine with minimum 3 years aging in the cellar, Champagne Dumenil is produced from the best Premier Cru vineyards of Chigny-les-Roses & Sacy. “Jany Poret” comes from Hugues Poret (winemaker Frederique’s husband) land located in the Premier Cru village of Sacy. This wine is their best expression of the terrior of Sacy. Hugues Poret is the latest in his family to craft fine Champagne, these vineyards have been passed down from generation to generation without broken family heritage.

Champagne Dumenil was founded in 1874 by Mr. Elie and Cecile Dumenil. The family tradition has been passed on to the great-granddaughters of the founders, Mrs. Frédérique Poret-Rebeyrolle with her husband Mr. Hugues Poret. Both coming from winemaking families, Hugues is in charge of the vineyards and Frédérique is assisted by her mother with marketing and winemaking process. Dumenil Champagne is made with grapes coming from vines that belong to the family, 8 hectares totaling 45 parcels in only Premier Cru terroir: Chigny-les-Roses, Rilly-la-Montagne and Ludes.

Pale golden color with fine lively bubbles. The nose is full of fresh fruit of apple and peach. The palate is rich and fruity with a softness. Ripe fruit with hint of sweet spices.

The entire vineyard is manage according to the implementation of environment-friendly vine growing techniques called Sustainable Viticulture, which aim to limit interventions and to use natural products in order to no longer treat systematically in a preventive way but by taking into account sensibilities of the vines to disease.

Hand harvested on hillsides with selective and strict pruning. Only the cuvees (1st pressing) are selected. Full malolactic fermentation is completed for roundness and smoothness.
