Duval-Leroy Champagne Blend Champagne Brut NV
pale gold with fine beads; slight sweetness
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.
Good value for money champers, not particularly distinctive though
Really enjoyed this wine, but not sure the pretty bottle is worth the extra price.
Fairly singular, but absolutely delicious brut champagne that won't kill your wallet.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Duval-Leroy Champagne Blend Champagne Brut
Rich and gingery, yet with a firm structure, settling into citrus, toast and hazelnut flavors. I like the balance and expression in this solid, well-integrated wine. Drink now.
A full style of wine, with a touch of toast. This is rich, with flavors of white fruits as well as a layer of acidity that comes through. An attractive wine from a firm that is on the way up.
A big, full-bodied bubbly, featuring graphite, toast, lemon and nut aromas and flavors. Balanced, with an assertive finish. Will improve with a few months of cellaring. Drink now through 2009.
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.
Apple and bread dough flavors mark this Champagne, which shows a touch of honey. Medium-bodied, with moderate length. Tails off a little on the finish. Drink now.
A beautiful bubbly. Firm, dry and intensely flavored, offering candied berry, vanilla pastry, honey and hazelnut notes wrapped in an elegant frame. It releases the flavors in a well-defined, appealing manner. Fine length and aftertaste. Drink now through 2998.
There's a creamy edge to the quince, biscuit, honey and ginger flavors in this well-cut Champagne, which help to balance the firm acidity. Vibrant and expressive, with a zesty finish. Drink now through 2014. 40,000 cases made. -AN Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Duval Leroy Brut 750ml
