After a making wine for Bollinger, Benoit went back to his family's estate in Fossoy. He carved out a tiny plot for himself and meticulously farms it biodynamically with his horse Violette. This is one of three distinct expressions of wine from the same plot made with 100% Pinot Munier, barrel aged, no dosage. Dehu's wines have nearly incomparable a florality, a minerality and elegance to his counterparts in the Marne.

Benoit is a Meunier specialist, working his family's vineyards on the western edge of the Vallée de la Marne. Starting in 2011, he started bottling wines under his own name from a single parcel called La Rue des Noyers -- 100% Pinot Meunier, farmed biodynamically, and ploughed mostly by horse. In 2015, he started blending some of this PM with Pinot Noir from a nearby plot, and calls it Initiation.

Champagne

Champagne boasts some of the world’s greatest luxury brands with Krug, Cristal and, of course, Dom Perignon. But it’s also home to hundreds of small dynamic producers—farmers who grow their own grapes (often organically) and make (often with natural methods) tiny amounts of pure and absolutely delicious wine that reflect the individual personalities of their villages and terroirs. Toast with these wines, for sure. But also treat them like the great wines they are: taste, drink, explore!
