Product description

Tasting Notes:

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 is a family business, established in 1859 through the merger of two Champagne growers. The company is still based in its village of origin, Vertus. Handed down from father to son, it has remained independent for 148 years. "The NV Brut is an attractive, entry-level wine laced with ripe pears, hazelnuts, spices and dried flowers. An understated, floral finish makes it hard to resist a second taste. This mid-weight, accessible, beautifully balanced Champagne is best suited for drinking over the next two to three years. I especially like the way NV Brut opens up with time in the glass."

-Wine Advocate

 

"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."
