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, 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.
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 Candocirc;te des Blancs.
Real champagne; toasty, yeasty and robust, with hypnotic bubbles; a long, bone-dry finish.
Dry, creamy entry. Lovely interplay between hazelnuts and red berries. Elegant, toasty, balanced. Delicate.
Fresh, ripe stone fruit and warm brioche nose. Clean lemon citrus flavour. Pleasing linear acidity with a long, chalky finish.
Located in the Candocirc;te des Blancs, Champagne Duval-Leroy is known for its Chardonnay-dominated bubblies, but in recent years the house has signed numerous contracts in the Montagne de Reims area of Champagne to increase its Pinot Noir supply. This NV brut blends 75 percent Pinot Noir with 25 percent Chardonnay, with 2005 as its base year (along with 20 percent reserve wines). Grapes were sourced from 15 different crus, about 35 percent of them estate-owned.
