Producer Note
Champagne Duval-Leroy was founded in 1859, with the alliance of the Duval and Leroy
families and has subsequently 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.
Vineyard
This cuvée is made up of Chardonnay grapes exclusively from six Grand Cru sites in Le
Mesnil sur Oger, Oiry, Oger, Avize, Chouilly and Cramant. Champagne Duval-Leroy
was one of the first Champagne houses to be HVE3 certified and a multitude of
sustainable practices are employed. Measures are taken to combat the run-off of rainwater, to limit the pollution of both underground and superficial water; grass cover
crops are grown and processes to combat soil erosion are employed. Biodiversity is
positively encouraged, sustainable fertilizers are used and sexual confusion of predators
takes place instead of insecticides. The plots and weather conditions encountered are
carefully monitored, with soil testing and cartographic, computerized methods in place
for full traceability of products used in the plots. Above all, preventative measures are in
place to minimize the use of products, if necessary, are carefully chosen to have
the least impact on the environment.
Winemaking
Honoring the family's commitment to sustainability, the vat room combines
photovoltaic solar panels, a rainwater harvesting system, and a green wall for heat
insulation. Vinification took a parcel by parcel approach, separating as much as
possible individual villages and terroirs. The grapes were hand-harvested and
fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures of 18°C in stainless steel tanks.
The malolacticconversion resulted in a softer mouthfeel. This wine did not have any lees
contact resulting in a crisp style. 4% was matured in the second passage of French oak,
adding richness and complexity. Following natural clarification and stabilization, the
wine underwent secondary fermentation in the bottle where it matured. This cuvée was
bottled aged for 14 years. Dosage: 3g/l.
Tasting Note
