“Four generations of vignerons have made Champagne at Hervieux-Dumez, a storied house tucked away in the small village of Sacy. At its helm today, Laurent, Clément and Timothée Hervieux encourage biodiversity by keeping bees and letting chickens roam their vineyards to fertilize the land and control weeds. At the same time, the vignerons’ elegant, refined cuvées reflect a passion for the craft and reverence for their family’s traditions.”
SEE: Light gold with stunning clarity. Fine delicate bubbles.
SMELL: Toasted almond and ripe notes of apple and pear
TASTE: A supple mouthfeel with balanced notes of lemon curd, orchard fruit, vanilla bean, and citrus rind. Juicy at first with zesty minerality in the mid-palate and a long, clean finish.
PAIR: This cuvée expertly complements a selection of firm cheeses and smoked meats, but it can also round out a lobster dinner featuring baked potatoes and stuffed mushrooms. Mmm.
