Champagne Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru “Aura de Marius” Delavenne Père et Fils was created to celebrate the birth of Marius, new member of the Delavenne family’s fifth generation. Produced exclusively with Pinot Noir from Bouzy, this powerful and expressive wine captures the spirit of its Terroir.
For 4 generations the Delavenne family has been producing distinctive Champagne cuvées from their 9 hectare estate of Grand Cru vineyards in the villages of Bouzy, Cramant and Ambonnay. Low sulphur, no fining, no herbicides or chemical fertilisers and all hand harvested grapes ensure every effort is made to retain the pure expression of the terroir. All fermentations take place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks as it is felt that barrels would detract from the transparency of the terroir. None of the wines are put through malolactic fermentation, maintaining an exceptionally bright, fresh and clean, knife-edge acidity. All cuvées are aged a minimum of three years in bottle.
