Winemaker's Notes:

"A wine of depth and harmony, this balances its toast and candied berry flavors with a creamy texture and mouthwatering structure. Lovely imtegration of all the elements and intensity of flavor, with a lingering mineral aftertaste. Drink now through 2006. 6000 cases made"

About Duval-Leroy:

This independent supply, on a scale rarely found in Champagne, provides one quarter of the company¹s annual grape requirement. A major asset, it guarantees the quality and consistency of Duval-Leroy champagne. The delicate balance of three grape varieties give the wine all of its characteristics, but because we are in the Côte de Blancs, Chardonnay predominates. The vines, the sun and the rain decide each year on the quality of the grapes. Man humbly takes part in this symbiosis, but his involvement is essential to ensure that the harvest reveals all of its potential.... At Duval-Leroy, more than 35 people manage the vineyard all year round, giving each vine the attention and loving care that it needs. For the harvest, 350 grape pickers join the permanent staff for the major event in the wine grower¹s calendar. The in-house presses receive the grapes as they are picked along with those purchased from other growers.
