Champagne Delavenne is a family-owned estate that has been passed down from generation to generation. Their family expertise follows the Champenois tradition while combining it with techniques characteristic of their estate, to offer beautifully complex champagnes.
As opposed to the general practice in Champagne, they do not perform malolactic fermentation. This technique requires great skill and attention. They let their wines evolve in vats as naturally as possible. This natural process of vinification is a long and subtle one. It requires irreproachable hygiene, daily checks and lots of patience. Their champagnes age in natural cellars, carved out of the local chalk, for a minimum of three years – longer for the vintage cuvées. This careful effort is clearly expressed in their high-quality champagnes which age better and express the typicity of their terroir.
This is their first time exporting to the state of California and Amliére is so proud to be representing them!
