Aged in the cellars on the lees for 5 years. Made from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, this special Amour Cuvee offers a richer style of Champagne.

Champagne Dumenil is produced from the best Premier Cru vineyards of Chigny-les-Roses. The small commune of Chigny-les-Roses sites on the slopes north of Montagne de Reims and just a few miles south of the Reims.

Champagne Dumenil was founded in 1874 by Mr. Elie and Cecile Dumenil. The family tradition has been passed on to the great-granddaughters of the founders, Mrs. Frédérique Poret-Rebeyrolle with her husband Mr. Hugues Poret. Both coming from winemaking families, Hugues is in charge of the vineyards and Frédérique is assisted by her mother with marketing and winemaking process. Dumenil Champagne is made with grapes coming from vines that belong to the family, 8 hectares totaling 45 parcels in only Premier Cru terroir: Chigny-les-Roses, Rilly-la-Montagne and Ludes.

Golden color with delicate mousse and fine bubbles. Bouquet of black currant, red currant and wild strawberry with dried fruit, grilled almonds, quince and plum. On the palate hints of raspberry, crushed strawberry followed by freshness. This Champagne has a rich texture, superb balance and a biscuity note on the long finish.

The entire vineyard is manage according to the implementation of environment-friendly vine growing techniques called Sustainable Viticulture, which aim to limit interventions and to use natural products in order to no longer treat systematically in a preventive way but by taking into account sensibilities of the vines to disease.

Hand harvested on hillsides with selective and strict pruning. Only the cuvees (1st pressing) are selected. Full malolactic fermentation is completed for roundness and smoothness.
Disgorgement is done 4-6 months prior to shipment and given a dosage of wine and cane sugar.

General Market

Great as an aperitif, but this rich and fruit forward Champagne will match well with foie gras, game, casserole and red fruit dessert.
