CHAMPAGNE DUVAL-LEROY 7 ½ BOTTLE SET
This set includes:
Champagne Duval-Leroy Demi Sec NV (6 bottles)
Honeyish, brioche, and slightly nutty. Delicious fruitiness that shines over the sweetness. Dominated by 90% Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with Chardonnay making up the 10% balance, Duval-Leroy was founded in 1859 and remains proudly family-owned and family-managed. In 2007, Carol Duval-Leroy became the first woman ever to be made Chairman of the Association Viticole Champenoise, the region’s association of winemakers.
Champagne Duval-Leroy Femme de Champagne Grand Cru Brut (1 bottle)
Although the vintage is not reflected on the label, this is the 2004 harvest. Femme de Champagne is the prestige cuvée of the house. Appley cider and citrussy fruit. Brioche and a shade of nuttiness has set in. Richness, complexity, persistence, and loads of vivacity in the same sip. The wine had a minimum 8 years on lees in bottle. The blend is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, all of which is from Grand Cru villages: Avize, Chouilly and Le Mesnil sur Oger for Chardonnay, and Ambonnay for Pinot Noir.
Champagne Duval-Leroy Femme de Champagne 2004 (375 ml half-bottle)
Although both wines are of the same year, a slightly different expression from the Grand Cru Brut. So too the blend which is 87% Chardonnay and 13% Pinot Noir. Being half-bottle, the evolution is slightly more advanced. Bright mid-gold. Tiny, persistent, irrepressible bubbles. Brioche, hazel nutty, intense lemon peel, and sandalwood. Complex, firm, dry and very fresh.
