This vintage Champagne from Duval-Leroy is a Blanc de Blanc style, which means it is made entirely from chardonnay. It's a pure, dry Champagne that shows lots of peaches and cream, lemon and grapefruit citrus, and roasted nuts on the nose. The palate is lighter-bodied, dry and pristine, with juicy citrus flavours, an appealing talcy texture, fine bubbles, and a long, crisp and crunchy finish that will see it live in the cellar for a good few years yet. Lovely stuff!
The Champagne House of Duval-Leroy affirms its style with the clear and luminous character of this cuvee. Its colour is adorned by a persistent stream of fine and bright bubbles. Its elegant palate unfurls to reveal intense mineral notes with aromas of warm caramelized almond, white peach and hawthorn. The final, long-lasting and harmonious impression is of the marriage of the succulence of these flavours with the alchemy of a great Champagne.
