"Benoit Dehu's name only rose to some prominence within the last five years, the Dehu family’s Champagne house was founded in 1787, making Benoit the eighth generation grower of this tiny house in the Vallée de la Marne."

Benoit Dehu

Benoit cut his teeth at Bollinger, and was inspired to pursue biodynamics in a small plot of his family’s domaine upon returning, creating his eponymous Champagne label, dedicated almost entirely to the Pinot Meunier grape. From this 1.70 hectare plot, Benoit crafts two sparkling wines and two still wines, all of which are vinified in oak, and are bottled without any further interference of fining or filtering, and zero dosage after disgorgement. Heavy limestone soils provide incredible lift to the Meunier grape, emphasizing its floral, zesty tones. La Rue des Noyers Blanc is entirely Meunier, showing off ripe red fruits and the classic Meunier salty-smoky quality. The Rosé version of the wine is allowed to macerate for 42 hours, creating a gorgeous hue in the glass and even more beautiful depth on the palate. Creamy ripe and tart red fruits, dried flowers are finished off with a brilliant mineral strike that elevates the aromatics. His Coteaux Champenois Rouge shows Benoit's ability to show the absolute depth of Meunier's beauty, where the perfect ruby color in the glass gives you a hint of what you're about to experience: wild red and dark fruits with delicate spice and flinty mineral hints, a wild wine and one of the best Coteaux around!

The NV (2012) Extra Brut Cuvée La Rue des Noyers Non-Dosé is powerful, dense and austere. A huge center of fruit, remarkable depth and exceptional balance are some of the signatures. The 2012 is a Champagne of real weight and gravitas. It is perhaps just a bit less defined and subtle than the 2013 tasted alongside it, but that is a pretty small critique for a wine of this much character. With time in the glass, the 2012 simply blossoms and becomes more expressive. The Extra Brut Cuvée La Rue des Noyers is 100% Meunier vinified and aged in barrel, with no malolactic fermentation. Dosage is 1 gram per liter. Disgorged March 2014.
