"Over the last 10 years, the quality of Duval-Leroy has soared and for a few years now it has been possible to claim that no other house can beat it for consistency of style - not even the greatest of the great" - Tom Stevenson, writing in Decanter magazine.
Duval-Leroy was founded in 1859 in Vertus in the Cote des Blancs, Champagne, and remains there to this day under the same ownership, having been handed from father to son since. It is the last Champagne house of this size to remain totally independent and the latest owner Madame Carol Duval-Leroy, who personally overseas the wine-making process, intends for it to remain so.
Duval-Leroy is also one of the last Champagne houses to use the Saignee method which exemplifies the focus of traditional methods of Champagne making. High quality stocks of reserve wines preserve the quality and consistency of style which Duval-Leroy is now renowned for.
