Duval Leroy is a family brand of French heritage spanning 160 years of tradition & innovation. Working on the noble art of Champagne for generations, the house projects itself into a bright future of creative excellence. The family produces Champagnes with finesse, lightness, & elegance: Champagnes that speak directly to the hearts of the public & professionals, that respect the terroir and enhance it, and that honor French creative tradition. This Champagne is composed of 87% Chardonnay and 13% Pinot Noir grapes from the best parcels classified as Grand Cru in Avize, Chouilly, Le-Mesnil-sur-Oger, & Ambonnay. Golden yellow in color, this wine bears fine lines of bubbles that reveal complex notes of lively maturity with brioche, vanilla bean, and woody aromas alternating with lemon & mandarin orange citrus fruit characters. A fine attack on the palate is followed by a silky touch with a seemingly infinite persistence. Pair this with Cocktail Shrimp, Chicken Canapes, and Foie Gras Pate & Caviar.
Bright yellow in color, the nose reveals citrus & fresh bread notes that eventually give way to floral aromas and apricot, peach, & quince fruit characters. On the palate, a bewitching flavor of ripe hazelnuts with underlying honeysuckle is quickly followed by delicate notes of crystallized mandarin & orange peel characters.
