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 a blend of Côte des Blancs (Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and
Vertus); Montagne de Reims (Ambonnay, Bouzy, Trépail, Verzenay, Verzy, Ludes et Rilly
la Montage) and Vallée de la Marne (Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Avenay Val d'Or, Cumières,
Dizy).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 rain water, 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 fertilisers 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, computerised methods in place for full traceability of products used in
the plots. Above all, preventative measures are in place to minimise the use of
products, which if necessary, are carefully chosen to have the least impact on the
environment.
Winemaking
Honouring 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 takes a parcel by parcel approach, separating as much as
possible individual villages, varieties and terroirs. The grapes were hand-harvested and
fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures of 18°C in stainless steel tanks.
Malolactic conversion resulted in a softer mouthfeel. 2% of this wine was matured in
second use French oak. This wine did not have any lees contact and following natural
clarification and stabilisation; the wine underwent secondary fermentation in bottle. This
cuvée was bottled aged for five to six years. Dosage: 4g/l.
