Wine of the Month: “La Rue des Noyers” 2016
On the outskirts of Champagne, in Fossoy located in the Vallée de la Marne, there exists a tiny domaine belonging to Benoît Déhu. From here, he crafts the prestige, La Rue des Noyers, which has turned the world of Meunier on its head.
With the well-established nature of the family domaine, Benoît, representing the 7th generation, took the opportunity to work with a 1.7 hectare parcel, La Rue des Noyers, and began to produce wines under his very own eponymous label in 2011. The plot was immediately worked both organically and in “biodynamie”.
Rich golden hue, with fine bead.
The nose starts quite discrete with distinctive raspberry and butterscotch notes. After oxygenation the flavor profile gets broader with more fig, nutty, meaty and saline character. The silky texture leads to a long iodine-tinged persistance.
