Champagne Duval-Leroy Brut Reserve NV

Refreshing and elegant, with biscuity flavours layered with
dark chocolate, cinnamon and roasted yellow fig,
beautifully balanced and refined.
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
The blend is made up of approximately 15 crus, including: Chatillon sur Marne,
Venteuil, Fleury la Rivière de la Rive droite de la Vallée de la Marne, Vallée de l’Ardre,
Côte des Bars and Coteaux de Sézanne. The vineyards are situated on the renowned,
chalky soils of the Champagne region. 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 individual
villages, varieties and terroirs. This cuvée is a blend of 15 crus with 40% of reserve wines,
resulting in a complex and consistent style. 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. Following natural clarification and
stabilisation, the wine underwent secondary fermentation in bottle where it matured for
30 to 36 months on fine lees in the underground chalk cellars, until disgorgement.
Dosage 8g/l.
