Premier Cru NV

This 100% Premier Cru wine comes from a rich history. In 1911 Raymond Duval-Leroy was the first to create a Champagne selected only from Grand Cru and Premier Cru villages in the Montagne de Reims (Pinot Noir) and Côte des Blancs (Chardonnay) regions.  Predominantly Chardonnay, this exemplifies Duval-Leroy's signature style of delicate bubbles, low dosage, and elegant complexity.
