Another Chabrol Evergreen. De Venoge is a medium-sized, classic Champagne house founded in 1837 in Epernay. The ‘Cordon Bleu’ on the label is a hint at the small river after which the originally Swiss Venoge family was named. Like most classic Champagne houses De Venoge use mostly bought grapes, but part of their fruit is sourced from their own 19 hectare holdings.
De Venoge Champagne Cordon Bleu Brut
Vinification: All De Venoge Champagnes are produced with Premier and/or Grand Cru Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes and the finest Pinot Meunier grapes, of which only the cuvée (the first soft pressing) is used. After second fermentation the wines are allowed to rest sur-lie for a minimum of three to four years.
Character: The ‘Cordon Bleu Brut’ is a beautifully vinous, Pinot Noir-dominated Champagne. Mature aroma’s of baked apple, citrus, chalk, toasted yeast and butter. Tight and crisp on the palate, with a creamy and persistent mousse. Light and delicate enough to drink as an aperitif by itself or with oysters, but also the necessary substance to accompany more elaborate seafood dishes.
