Description
 
The Champagne House of Duval-Leroy is a 100% family-owned company. It was founded 150 years ago in Vertus (Côte des Blancs) and has been based there ever since. It is one of the last Houses to be totally independent at this size, with large vineyard holdings (200 hectares under cultivation). Duval-Leroy has a presence in all villages classified ‘Grand Cru’ of the Côte des Blancs and has notable holdings in the ‘Grands Noirs’ of the Montagne de Reims also. Carol Duval-Leroy has been in charge of the family business since 1991. Her overall target does not change: she determines to make Duval-Leroy an internationally recognized brand with sales between 5 and 5.5 million bottles per year.

Tasted for the third time now, the 2006 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Millésime Prestige offers a delicious and matured bouquet of ripe fruits, cream, caramel and brioche flavors. (The wine tasted here is from lot L6280NG09, which was disgorged in October 2016 after 9.5 years on the lees, with a dosage of less than five grams per liter.) It is pure, fresh and mineral on the palate, highly elegant and finessed but also intense, very well structured and provided with a perfect roundness in the long, clear and cleansing but also complex finish. This is by far the best lot I have tasted so far; it's simply a gorgeous Champagne that I'd love to have with a never-ending Sunday morning brunch. Four percent of the base wines were fermented in oak, the rest in stainless steel. The grapes were sourced in six grand cru villages such as Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry. Tasted on a dark and rainy November evening 2017. Wine Advocate 94
