Much drier than many non-vintage Champagnes, this is full of crisp grapefruit flavors, lively green fruits, and a touch of bready yeast. It is a deliciously fresh wine, dancing across the palate.

This rich, sumptuous bubbly is marked by clover honey, candied citrus and hints of malt and mineral. It’s beautifully integrated, with medium weight and a lingering, ginger-infused aftertaste. Drink now through 2010.

Dry, creamy entry. Lovely interplay between hazelnuts and red berries. Elegant, toasty, balanced. Delicate.

Aromas and flavors of toasted brioche and citrus with a balanced mouthfeel and lively bubbles; ends with a crisp, dry finish.

Duval-Leroy has its finger on the consumer hot button; this is what most people conjure up in their mental palate when the word Champagne pops up. Full, almost fleshy, and richly delicious, this is not the most complex or elegant bottle. But in terms of delivering big, friendly flavor at a fair price, this is the one to beat. I particularly like the way the wine continues to evolve on the back palate; it doesn’t just sit there and grin at you. It smoothly rides into a toasty sunset, waving its big hat.

Founded in 1859, Duval-Leroy has been under the direction of owner Carol Duval-Leroy since 1990, and she is one of the few women at the helm of a Champagne house. This full-bodied non-vintage brut uses a 2003 base and blends 75 percent Pinot Noir with 25 percent Chardonnay. The grapes were sourced from 20 different vineyards located on the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.

With leesy apple and pear flavors, this is a clean, simple Champagne for any fresh catch.

Winemaker's Notes:

Alcohol Percentage: 12 % Sugar Rate: 6-12 g/l

<p> <p>Duval-Leroy is a large family owned Champagne house headquartered in Vertus in Cote de Blancs. This brut rose's salmon color, created from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, holds one's eye and has hints of amber. Its bouquet releases a wealth of aromas: wild cherries, figs and even a hint of ginger and geranium.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </p>
