The first Champagne to be certified Premier Cru, this cuvée is composed of Chardonnay (70%) and Pinot Nor (30%); the blend has remained unchanged since it was created by Raymond Duval-Leroy back in 1911. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures of 18°C in stainless steel tanks. 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 fruit. Dosage 9.5g/l.

A silky and elegant Champagne, with evocative floral notes of hawthorn and honeysuckle leading to almond and toasty overtones. Lively on the attack, with a beautifully balanced palate through to a long, poised finish.

Winery

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 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 traceability of products used.
