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.

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.

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.

Duval-Leroy Brut is one of our favorite value priced non-vintage Champagnes. Very fine and crisp, with citrus and biscuit aromatics.

Firm, with a lively bead and a well-meshed range of smoky mineral, white peach, candied lemon zest, biscuit and pickled ginger notes. Mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2017.

Located in the Cocirc;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.

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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Providing a perfect balance between finesse and power, it draws out flavors of dark chocolate, cinnamon and roasted yellow figs, expressing its subtle, melt-in-the-mouth vinosity.
