This cuvee reflects the close collaboration between Carol Duval-Leroy, President of the House and Sandrine Logette-Jardin, Head Winemaker. It is only produced in the most exceptional years. In stainless steel tanks, the hand-harvested grapes were fermented with selected yeasts at 18°C. The still wine underwent malolactic conversion, resulting in a softer mouthfeel, and the still wine did not have any lees contact, maintaining the purity of the fruit. 20% was matured in used Chateau d’Yquem barrels, imparting texture and richness. Bottle-aged for 20 years on the fine lees.

A Champagne of exceptional finesse and aromatic complexity, with brioche, hazelnut and tobacco nuances layered with minerality and wonderful depth of fruit expression. Silky and elegant with great concentration and superb length.

The three revered Chardonnay Grand Cru sites of Oger, Cramant and Le Mesnil sur Oger and the Pinot Noir Grand Cru site of Ambonnay produced the grapes for this cuvee. Champagne Duval-Leroy was one of the first Champagne houses to be HVE3 certified. Measures are taken to combat the run-off of rainwater to limit the pollution of 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 are carefully monitored, with soil testing and cartographic, computerised traceability of products used.
