Marks and reviews
Founded under the impetus of two brothers, Jules and Auguste Devaux, the Devaux Champagne House remained a family-owned estate from 1846 to 1987, the year in which this priceless heritage was passed on to the Union Auboise, which has now become the "Groupe Vinicole Champagne Devaux".
Thanks to a partnership with more than 100 partnering winegrowers, the Devaux Champagne House has developed over the years a unique approach in the Champagne region, sustainable viticultural practices throughout its vineyards. Made from exceptional vineyards, Devaux champagnes enhance two of the Champagne region's leading grape varieties, the Pinot Noir from the Côte des Bar, which is round and powerful, and the Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and Montgueux, which is fine, elegant and fresh.
The plot-based champagnes, grouped together under the same name - the D collection - are renowned for their purity and their authentic expression of the house's know-how.
