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. Read less

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!

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.

The Maison Duval-Leroy revels in the art of blending Pinots and Chardonnays. Enriched with around fifteen crus and generous quantity of reserve wines, Duval-Leroy Brut confirms its complexity and is recognised for its consistency.

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.

A firm version, with an open-knit texture and chalky undertow, featuring a subtle mesh of persimmon, white raspberry, honey, blanched almond and apricot notes. Delicate finish. Drink now.

An elegant wine, with a delicate grain and subtle, citrusy acidity. Offers flavors of yellow apple, clementine and licorice snap, with hints of marzipan and coconut and a fresh, creamy finish. Drink now through 2018. 40,000 cases made. -Alison Napjus Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Duval Leroy Brut 750ml

Duval-Leroy, with 145 years of winemaking under its belt, is managed today by Carol Duval-Leroy. This brut, from winemaker Hervandeacute; Jestin, is a blend of 80 percent Pinot Noir and 20 percent Chardonnay hailing from many different crus, including Vertus, Rilly, Bouzy, Ay and Chouilly. Fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks, and the wine is aged for three years on the lees in caves located in Chalon.
