Our house Champagne, a sumptuous blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Providing a perfect balance between finesse and power. Hints of yellow fig, light toast and citrus zest, with a delicate, fresh mousse, it draws out flavours of dark chocolate and cashew, expressing a subtle, melt-in-the-mouth vinosity.
Family owned and run through six generations since 1859, Champagne Duval-Leroy is one of the true elite Champagne houses, listed in over 250 Michelin-starred restaurants including Michel Roux Jnr’s Le Gavroche, The Waterside and The Dorchester. Led today by Carol Duval-Leroy and ably assisted by her three sons, Julien, Charles and Louis, the house remains the last of its size to remain totally independent. The Champagnes produced are the essence of finesse, lightness and elegance, overseen by Madame Duval-Leroy and Champagne’s only female Chef de Cave (winemaker), Sandrine Logette-Jardin.
Enjoy as an aperitif or with shellfish, smoked salmon or hors d’oeuvre.
Broad and indulgent quince, verbena and lemongrass nose with a hint of tobacco and peach kernel in the mouth. Fresh vinous finish. 91 points.
