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 rosé cuveé is a a blend of Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, with Pinot Noir
from Vertus and Montagne de Reims. 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 took a parcel by parcel approach, separating as much as
possible individual villages, varieties and terroirs. This wine was vinified combining the
two techniques for creating rosé wines; maceration of the Pinot Noir grapes for texture,
with blending of the Chardonnay to provide acidity and freshness. 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. 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: 9g/l.
