Pierre learned to walk in the vineyards alongside his father Paul, who came from a long line of vintners that goes back to 1610. Like his great-grandfather Léon, his grandfather Henri and his father Paul, Pierre is tracing his own path… in the heart of the grassy wine country of Ambonnay. Pierre and Sophie Déthune honour their land and cultural heritage born of the courage of their ancestors, and are careful about the choices they make, and of what they will leave behind them. They do the demanding job of Grower-Producers, following a stringent sustainable development* approach. As regards the line that came before them and the one that extends ahead, the couple consider themselves to be a generational relay of a timeless heritage. With quality and respect for people and the environment, they produce a range of seven champagnes that are 100% Grand Cru. Champagne Paul Déthune’s winery and vineyard are located in the village of Ambonnay en Champagne. This terroir bears the appellation of Grand Cru excellence (only 17 communes have this honour) and its reputation is based on a unique expression of Pinot Noir, pleasantly combined with Chardonnay, the white varietal of Champagne. Backed by tradition and experience, Pierre and his wife Sophie now develop this know-how while keeping a close eye on technological advances and ensuring they protect the harmony of Nature.
This champagne’s intense bouquet and sparkling colour with tints of ripe wheat will seduce you. On the palate, its aromas of underbrush, honeysuckle and bergamot invite you to the forest and the spice market. Its freshness and liveliness are combined with its creamy flavour. A distinguished wine with a delicate honey finish.
