Duval Leroy Rose 1er Cru Prestige

Beautiful example of a rosé Champagne from the prestigious Duval-Leroy family. 

An elegant pale rosé Champagne with aromas of wild cherries and figs layered with delicate floral notes and a hint of ginger . With a solid maturity and balanced vinosity, this wine represents the best of what Duval-Leroy has to offer. 

Champagne Duval-Leroy was founded in 1859, with the alliance of the Duval and Leroy families and has been passed down for six generations. Today, it is one of the last remaining independent, family-owned Champagne Houses. In 1991, Carol Duval-Leroy took over and today successfully leads the house, together with her three sons, Julien, Charles and Louis. Carol Duval-Leroy is the first and only woman to date to be appointed president of the Association Viticole Champenoise.

Certified HVE3, the family is firmly committed to sustainable development in the vineyards and in the cellars under the watchful eye of chef du cave, Sandrine Logette-Jardin. Based in Vertus, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, they create distinctive Champagnes of finesse and elegance, while capturing the essence of the terroir of their 200 hectare estate, which comprises 40% of Premier and Grand Cru villages in the Côte des Blancs and in the Montagne des Reims.

Champagne

Champagne

Hailing from northern France, Champagne is the most iconic sparkling wine in the world. Producing both white and rosé wines, Champagne is typically a blend of three varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

To achieve a consistent house-style, many Champagnes are a blend of base wines from several vintages, referred to as non-vintage. These have been aged for a minimum of 15 months before release and are typically dry with high acidity, notes of apple and light toast/brioche flavours.

Vintage Champagnes are made in exceptional years, and these are aged for a minimum of 36 months. These wines typically have pronounced apple, citrus and biscuit flavours. Special Cuvée Champagnes often are aged for much longer, developing complex, nutty, honeyed notes.

France

France

France – the home of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne – is arguably the world's most important wine-producing country. For centuries, it has produced wine in greater quantity – and many would say quality – than any other nation, and its attraction is not just volume or prestige, but also the variety of styles available. 

The diversity of French wine is due, in part, to the country's wide range of climates. Champagne, its most northerly region, has one of the coolest climates, whereas Bordeaux has a maritime climate, heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and the various rivers that wind their way between vineyards. Both in stark contrast to the southern regions of Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon, which enjoy a Mediterranean climate, characterized by hot summers and mild winters.

Terroir is also key. From the granite hills of Beaujolais to the famous chalky slopes of Chablis and the gravels of the Médoc, the sites and soils on which France's vineyards have been developed are considered of vital importance and are at the heart of the concept of terroir.
