About
Henri Dosnon Sélection is a refined, dry Champagne, meticulously crafted from a blend of carefully selected grape varieties, predominantly Meunier, sourced from the lush vineyards of the Aube region in Champagne, France. This cuvée reflects the unique terroir and the meticulous winemaking practices of Henri Dosnon, aiming to deliver a Champagne that captures the essence of its origin with elegance and depth. The Sélection is celebrated for its balance, showcasing the winery's commitment to quality and the expression of the Aube's distinctive character in every bottle.
Producer
Arriving in Champagne, Davey Dosnon was impressed by Burgundy and decided to locate his wine house in Aube, 40 km from Chablis. As the taste of the wine, especially Recolte Blanche, shows, the terroir has more in common with Burgundy than Champagne. In Burgundy, Dosnon collaborates with Rossignol-Trapet, and in Champagne with Serge Mathieu and Moutard Père et Fils. The winery was founded in 2009. Dosnon owns two hectares of vineyards in Avira Lange, and in addition, he buys grapes from the 5 hectares of vineyards that are located next to his winery (therefore they have N.M. status). 50,000 bottles are produced annually. All champagne is fermented in small, previously used barriques, and then aged for 20–45 months. The habit of aging wine in barriques also comes from Burgundy.
Tasting notes

Tasting notes for Henri Dosnon Sélection reveal a delicate harmony of floral and fruit aromas, with white flowers and fresh citrus on the nose, leading to a palate that elegantly combines crisp apple and pear notes with a creamy texture and a hint of brioche. The finish is clean and lingering, marked by a vibrant acidity and a subtle minerality that makes this Champagne both refreshing and complex.

Pairing

This Champagne pairs wonderfully with light seafood dishes, such as grilled prawns or a delicate fish ceviche, where its crisp acidity and fruit notes can complement the freshness of the seafood. It is also an excellent match for soft goat cheese or a simple, elegant salad, where its brightness and subtle complexity can elevate the flavors of the dish, making for a harmonious and sophisticated dining experience.

The Champagne region combines specific climate, soil, and topography conditions that form a unique terroir currently used by approx. 15 000 vine-growers and 300 wine houses. The region has 4 sub-regions - Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs, Vallée de la Marne, and Côte des Bar. Each provides customers with a different style of sparkling wine. The dominant grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which are mainly used in Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne, while Chardonnay shows excellent results in Côte des Blancs. The region is even more appealing because of the so-called "Growe's Champagne" wines, the production of which is overseen by one family from start to finish - they grow and press grapes, make wine, and bottle it in the territory of one wine house. This gives the wine a true charm, aura, and unique flavor.
