Champagne Duval-Leroy Brut Rêserve NV

Maison Duval-Leroy has been family owned and independent since 1859. This one purchased for a birthday escape for #MrsDrew.  A blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier

Champagne Duval-Leroy, Brut, Rêserve, Vertus, NV

Soft gold colour. Soda water brine, lemon pith, spiced bread crust, fresh pastry and kisses of rose petal. Very bubbly! Elegance and precise with linear drive and only a brief foray to opulence as an impulse readily controlled. Dovetails to textural wine rather than reliance upon bombastic red fruit blousiness and a hint of champignon meatiness. Finishes racing car finish line straight with spot on acidity. The cork removal was a little soft and didn’t augur well, so a very pleasant surprise. Good value.

RRP: $70
Alc: 12%
