"The NV (2013) Extra Brut Cuvée La Rue des Noyers Non-Dosé is a rich, ample wine built on texture and layers of deep, resonant fruit. From the very first taste, the 2013 shows itself to be a Champagne of real breadth. Hints of orange peel, roasted nuts, minerals, ash, chamomile, dried flowers and spice all flesh out in the glass. A deceptively mid-weight wine, the 2013 is enveloping in feel, but also has softer contours than the more explosive 2012 tasted alongside it. This is all finesse. Disgorged: April 2016. Non-dosé. Drinking window: 2017-2023. 94 points

Benoit Déhu's NV Extra Brut La Rue des Noyers has established itself as one of the most compelling wines in Champagne since it was first released with the 2011 vintage. La Rue des Noyers emerges from 1.7 hectare parcel in Fossoy planted with Meunier and farmed biodynamically. The wine is fermented and aged in barrel, and bottled with little or no dosage. This mini-vertical of four vintages was a great opportunity to see how some of the first releases are coming along."
