Cracka Review

This Blanc de Noir from Devaux is made from 100% pinot noir, so we are talking about a richer style of Champagne here. There are plenty of ripe strawberries, plums, red apples and earthiness on the nose, together with a sniff of toasted bread. The palate is quite dry and fuller-bodied for a Champagne, and shows red fruits, baked bread and anise flavours on the palate, a fine mousse, and a gentle, bright finish. It would be lovely with lemon chicken.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Intense yellow colour.

Nose: Intense and complex nose. Dried fruits with aniseed and mentholed nuances.

Palate: Elegant and soft in the mouth, while remaining fresh with a good finish. Key aromas: plum, roasted apple, tobacco.

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock says
This is a sturdy champagne, made exclusively with black grapes. It has a bit of fresh, doughy, yeasty fuzz across the top, then there's intense red fruits and spices too: there's an attractive rawness here. Flavours of wild strawberry and raspberry throughout the palate, some real punch and verve, finishing with flavoursome intensity. A great food partner.

James Halliday says
This wine is 100% pinot noir, in stark contrast to the Gimonnet wine, with 20% to 30% reserve wine, and three years on lees. Its strong bronze hue introduces a wine with multiple layers of flavour, its mix of nutty, creamy cracked yeast notes interwoven with small red berry fruits. Devaux is a large co-operative in the Aube that joined Yering Station in 1993 to produce Yarrabank.
