Duval-Leroy Premier Cru NV

Duval-Leroy Premier Cru NV

Duval-Leroy Premier Cru is made only from grapes with a Premier Cru designation and then aged a minimum of three years, a practice that is a hallmark of the Duval-Leroy Champagne house. Duval-Leroy was the first to create a Champagne selected only from Grand Cru and Premier Cru villages. Framed by vivid acidity, this harmonious Champagne shows a tapestry of poached pear, pastry dough, white raspberry, apple blossom and almond biscotti notes, with a refined, silky texture.

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.
