Duval-Leroy 'Femme de Champagne' Grand Cru NV

Champagne, France

Buy Now:

Memorable vintage collaboration between owner Carol Duval-Leroy and winemaker Sandrine Logette-Jardin.
Smooth, rounded and silky, in appearance like mother-of-pearl. On the nose, Femme de Champagne exudes scents of white flowers, peach, brioche crust and cream pastries. On the palate, a bewitching hint of hazelnut surrounds floral touches of honeysuckle and crystalised citrus peel.
A simply exquisite tasting experience, at the very pinnacle of Champagne.
Too good to have with anything else, but - if you insist - pair with veal blanquette or lemon and sage-stuffed loin of pork.
Founded in 1859, Duval-Leroy is today run by Belgian Carol Duval-Leroy, who took control of the estate after her husband Jean Charles died suddenly in 1991. As well as presiding over a long period of growth and success, she has also left her mark on the wider champagne world, becoming in 2007 the first woman ever to be nominated chairman of the AVC, Champagne's winemakers' association. Many consider successful, modern, market-building Carol to be the 21st century version of famous widow Veuve Clicquot! Carol's four sons work alongside her.
Femme comprises around 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir.
