Duval-Leroy Champagne Blend Champagne Brut NV
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
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.
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.
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.
A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Duval Leroy Brut Rose Non Vintage 750ml
A moussy, creamy, fresh and light Champagne, with velvet apples and cream character. There is a touch of citrus, but this so-fruity wine is lively and instantly delicious.
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.
This rich, sumptuous bubbly is marked by clover honey, candied citrus and hints of malt and mineral. Itrsquo;s beautifully integrated, with medium weight and a lingering, ginger-infused aftertaste. Drink now through 2010.
