Light lemon, creamy, medium dry. Yeasty. Light grapefruit and ginger.
Citrus nose, tiny bubbles and bright acidity with a creamy mouthfeel. Elegant and nice finish.
No an expert wine drinker, but this was my wedding wine. It is the best alcoholic drink I've ever had. Like to get a few more to share with family but can not find it anywhere around here in chicago area.
Bright golden toast hue with constantly streaming pinpoint bubbles, and aromas of baked apple-pear tarts with a kiss of citrus; rich flavor notes of biscuits and dried pear dancing over a almost never-ending finish. Great sparkling value!
WD: Duval Leroy Fleur de Champagne Brut NV: 80% C, 20% PN, a blend of twenty crus from Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs. An obvious lemon sherbet nose. Full, very fresh palate, with firm acidity. A rather sharp mousse, whic fades quickly. Will improve in the short term. Good. 16+/20.
External Reviews for Duval-Leroy Champagne Blend Champagne Brut
Providing a perfect balance between finesse and power, it draws out flavours of dark chocolate, cinnamon and roasted yellow figs, expressing its subtle, melt-in-the-mouth vinosity.
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 doesnandrsquo;t just sit there and grin at you. It smoothly rides into a toasty sunset, waving its big hat.
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.
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.
Fresh, ripe stone fruit and warm brioche nose. Clean lemon citrus flavour. Pleasing linear acidity with a long, chalky finish.
A fresh, finely knit version that meshes a silky mousse and delicate acidity with a subtle flavor range, including rich hints of toasted brioche, blackberry, spun honey, lemon zest and smoked almond. A fine aperitif in terms of weight and balance, but in a slightly richer style. Drink now through 2020.
