Champagne DUVAL-LEROY was founded in 1859 when two Champagne families came together to share their interests. Since its creation, Champagne DUVAL-LEROY has been located in Vertus, in the heart of "La Cote des Blancs". Currently the House cultivates about 200 hectares, much of which is devoted to production of high quality Chardonnay grapes. The predominance of Chardonnay in the elaboration of the cuvees gives a finesse, lightness and elegance to DUVAL-LEROY champagnes. Headed by Carol DUVAL-LEROY since 1991, the company is one of the few remaining 100% family-owned Champagne firms and is ranked in the 15 top Champagne houses.

TASTING NOTES:The Wine Advocate - "Lemon, green pears, pastry and spices are some of the many notes that take shape in Duval-Leroy’s 2000 Brut Femme de Champagne. There is a soft, open quality to the 2000 that is highly appealing. Hints of honey, flowers and Chamomile add complexity to a creamy finish nicely supported by lively, buffering minerality. This is a lovely effort from Duval-Leroy. Disgorgement date: Marc 27, 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."

Wine Spectator - "A rich version, with beautiful integration and mouthwatering acidity that seems to amplify the flavors of toasted raisin bread, black currant, candied orange zest and salted almond. Fresh and focused, showing hints of oyster shell and spice on the lasting finish. Disgorged September 2014. Drink now through 2030."
