Conjure up images of the French Riviera, punctuated with tangy lemon and cherry trees, rounded with the sweet touch of buttery biscuit.
Lively yet graceful, this fine-bubbled Champagne is perfect for those who value maturity, freshness, and first-class finesse.
To honour 10 years of De Watère in 2021 (expressed in the name „TEN“ and „21“), we’ve created this special blend. Next to our iconic blue-and-white TEN21 Special Edition, this bottle features and elegant minimalist design to fit any occasion.
TEN21 is produced exclusively from the Cuvée of equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and receives a low Dosage of only 7.9 grams, acting to help the aromas combine and shine at their highest. Comparable to a chef adding just the slightest pinch of salt.
Usually, this blend consists of equal parts of two consecutive years to capture the house style while allowing for individual years to shine through.
The wine is cleared by using gravity: we simply wait for all the suspended particles to float to the bottom of the enamelled steel tanks before transferring the wine into the bottles. Malolactic fermentation is allowed as it is a natural process to smooth out the expressive aromas.
TEN21 usually matures 2 to 3 years in chalk caves under the hills of Champagne. They are released not based on time but on taste. We taste frequently and when they are just perfect, we release the Cuvée TEN21 to market.
Every bottle is rattled by hand, as is standard for De Watère.
