"Benoit Déhu NV (2014) Extra Brut Cuvée La Rue des Noyers Non-Dosé is bright, powerful and tightly wound. A wine of energy and vibrancy, the 2014 is going to need at least a few years to be at its very best. Even so, its potential today is evident. The Meunier character is pronounced, but it is the wine's salivating minerality that gives shape, focus and cut. What a gorgeous wine this. Disgorged on August 4, 2017 with no dosage. Drinking window: 2019-2026. 93+ 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."

Antonio Galloni, Vinous (12/17)
