'Davy Dosnon runs this small, artisan cellar in Avirey-Lingey. Dosnon pursues sustainable viticulture and makes his wines in a non-manipulated style. All of the wines are fermented and aged in oak (although they rarely show overt influence from the wood) and are bottled with low dosage. Based on what I have tasted so far, Dosnon is one of Champagne’s most promising young wineries.' Antonio Galloni

Dosnon is the brainchild of Davy Dosnon who grew up in this beautiful region of rolling hills, wheat fields, and champagne vines. Davy studied viticulture and worked in top Burgundy wine houses before moving back to the village of Lingey in the Côte des Bar region of Champagne for the peace & quiet and to begin to reassemble his family’s vineyards.

The Côte des Bar is located in the southernmost area of Champagne in the Pays d’Aube. Politically and geologically, this sub-zone is as far as you can get from Reims and Épernay. When Champagne’s original borders were drawn, there was a lively debate on whether or not the Aube should be included. Here the terroir is starkly different from northern Champagne and its famed chalky soils. In the Aube, the terroir resembles that of Chablis – clay over Kimmeridgian and Portlandian limestone. These soils produce wines of great delineation, power, and purity.

Davy farms 7.5 hectares of vines around the villages of Avirey and Lingey, just half an hour north of Chablis. He owns two hectares himself, and rents the rest. The patchwork nature of the vineyards – intermixed with forest and fields of grain – shows the centuries-long work of identifying the rockiest and most suitable places to grow vines. Davy is descended from these pioneers, and he preserves many of their tools & records in his cellar.

Redcurrant, orange zest, jasmine and a hint of minerals on the seductively perfumed nose. Juicy and vibrant, offering powerful, spice- and mineral-accented flavors of red berries and orange peel. Silky and expansive on a finish resounding with orange and mineral notes.
