Duval-Leroy Fleur de Champagne Brut Premier Cru
Delicate bouquet in a bottle
From 1911, when the vineyard classification became official, Raymond Duval-Leroy, with the desire to pay tribute to his predecessors, created an exceptional wine. During the first tasting sessions, Raymond Duval-Leroy distinguished an aroma of white flowers evoking the scent of the “wine flower” in June. This led to the birth of “Fleur de Champagne”.
Tasting Notes from the Curator
Made with a fine mix of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, Fleur de Champagne is elegant and well-structured, it is veiled with fine, satiny bubbles. Bringing together a long, well-balanced taste and a cultivated, distinguished character, this champagne is a harmonious prelude to a delicious meal. Derived from a lively cuvee, a lofty, fragrant source with a hint of minerals, it will capture the memories of shared emotions for a very long time.
This champagne goes perfectly with seafood, grilled meat and mild and soft cheeses.
Made by the House that perfected Champagne
Champagne Duval-Leroy was founded in 1859 when two Champagne families came together to share their interests. Since its creation, the company has been located in Vertus, in the heart of “La Cote des Blancs”. Currently the Maison DuVal-Leroy cultivates about 200 hectares, much of which is devoted to production of high quality Chardonnay grapes. The predominance of Chardonnay in the elaboration of the cuvees gives a finesse, lightness and elegance to Duval-Leroy champagnes.
Fine sparkling wine must be handled with care. For short-term storage (a few days to a month), you can keep your bottle upright—but away from bright or artificial light. For long-term storage, especially for vintage cuvées, you must store the bottles on their side in a wine rack or cellar to keep the cork from drying out. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 10°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 1 to 3 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
