Duval-Leroy Brut NV

Duval-Leroy is made from a blend of the three major grapes grown in Champagne: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. It is aged for three years, a signature aging process for Duval-Leroy that adds richness, complexity and consistency to its silky Champagnes. Rich in flavors such as toasted brioche, spun honey and smoked almond, this Champagne’s delicate acidity makes it the perfect aperitif.

Fermentation
Alcoholic fermentation is conducted at low, stable temperatures in single vineyard batches in order to optimize the aromatic complexity inherent to each terroir. All cuvees undergo malolactic fermentation developing a characteristic smoothness and the first inklings of those brioche-like aromas.
Aging
The wines are bottled for a second fermentation called 'prise de mousse' (capturing the sparkle) then stored at 53 degrees in chalk cellars where they age for a minimum of 36 months before disgorgement.
