DVX, our prestigious tête de cuvée, honors the late Guy Devaux, founding winemaker of Mumm Napa. The grapes of DVX come from fewer than a dozen of our very best vineyard sources.
The 2008 DVX Extended Tirage has amazingly fresh fruit tones for an 8 year old wine; including orange, tangerine citrus, toasted bread, warm brioche, raspberry coulis, and quince aromas. On the palate the wine has a round and creamy mouthfeel, with smooth notes of fresh fig, feijoa, granny smith apple, and a lingering finish of fresh almond nuts. It exhibits a crisp and refreshing acidity from beginning to finish.Download Fact Sheet
For this Extended Tirage edition, only seven lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were selected for the final 2008 blend. Twenty percent of the wine volume was barrel fermented and aged to add depth and complexity. The blend was aged on the yeast 87 months, adding creaminess and soft notes and flavors.Download Fact Sheet
