The NV Extra Brut Oeil de Perdrix is a Meunier-based Rosé all from the 2017 harvest. Translucent and yet deceptive in its richness the Oeil de Perdrix has a lot going on. Orange peel spice rose petal and sweet red cherry fruit are all nicely lifted. Oeil de Perdrix is a beautiful expressive Champagne but it only truly blossoms with a few hours of air. The zero dosage style is especially felt on the clean bracing finish. Bottled with no dosage. Disgorged: July 2019.
Wine Advocate: 90+ Points
Disgorged in July 2019 without dosage Dehours's NV Extra-Brut Oeil de Perdrix is showing nicely unwinding in the glass with scents of raspberries fresh peach and mandarin oil. Medium to full-bodied taut and incisive it's tightly wound with racy acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse. There's less flesh on the wine's structural bones here than in last year's disgorgement but it should unwind nicely with time in the cellar.
