The Duval-Leroy Rosé Prestige Premier Cru is made with Premier Cru Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, and exudes a beautiful and delicate salmon color. It has fine, delicate bubbles, with an ABV of 12%. On the nose, it gives a wonderful bouquet, filled with notes of wild cherries and figs, and hints of ginger and geraniums. It’s elegant and round on the palate, with notes of white raspberry, ginger, and lemon zest. It has a long finish that gives notes of juniper.

House Duval-Leroy has been in the business for 150 years. This French heritage brand is family-owned, and its roots are steeped in the noble art of Champagne. It is at the forefront of many milestones, like being the first winery in the world to use a combination of photovoltaic solar powerplant, a rainwater harvesting system, and a green wall thermal and sound insulation, thereby also making them first in sustainable viticulture.
Carol Duval-Leroy, head of house and dubbed “woman of Champagne,” is also the first and only woman to be appointed President of the Association Viticole Champenoise. Their ambition and their striving for excellence is passed from generation to generation, producing champagnes of utmost superiority. Their Champagnes respect the terroir, and honor the French creative tradition. They acknowledge and embrace modernity while still keeping tradition close to heart.
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.
