Dumenil is an independent Champagne House founded in 1874 & remaining in the family for 5 generations. All vineyards are Premier Cru in the typical chalk soil of Champagne’s Montagne de Reims. Only the first & best juice is used.
Aged for 7 years on lees the vintage 2005 is 60% of Chardonnay & 20% for both Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier. The cuvée milleime is a very expressive Champagne with quince & prunes aromas & notes of toasted hazelnut. Vinous & round on the palate with hint of minerality & very fine bubbles. Exceptional vintage Champagne.
“Bright wine with gold, silver & green hues. Delicate notes of acacia honey with lemon marmalade, vanilla & brioche. Full bodied, with fine bubbles & good length.” – Hotelliere Industry
