Press & Reviews
Disgorged without dosage in July 2018 and derived from the 2017 vintage, Dehours' NV Extra-Brut Oeil de Perdrix is showing beautifully, exhibiting notes of red apple, mandarin and peach as well as hints of buttery pastry and red berries. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy but incisive, with a charming core of fruit, brisk acids and a delicate pinpoint mousse, it's an elegant, charming wine that comes warmly recommended.
