Winemaker Notes

Made from 100% Chardonnay from the Champagne region's finest Grand Cru vineyards, Duval-Leroy Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is creamy on the palate with flavors of tangerine and toasted almonds. Undercurrents of apple, lemon zest and sea salt make it the perfect pairing with fish and shellfish, roasted chicken and hard cheeses.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This has all the mineral qualities associated with pure Chardonnay. It is crisp, tightly textured and bright. It also has more serious depths of structure, white fruits and richness. This is still ready to age further. Drink now, although it will be better from 2016.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A minerally version, fresh and focused, with a subtle, smoky underpinning and rich flavors of toasted brioche and coconut, poached pear, candied kumquat and chopped almond riding the fine, lacy bead. Disgorged February 2014. Drink now through 2026.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
One of the most complex Champagnes in the marketplace, the 2006 Duval-Leroy Blanc de Blancs exhibits bread yeast, ripe apples, and crème in the aromas. The wine's combination of its full-bodied presence and tangy finish make a fine choice with steamed steelhead in a light soy and scallion sauce. (Tasted: September 26, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The pale yet brillant yellow 2006 Millésimé Prestige Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru offers an attractive mix of dusty chalk flavors intermixed with yeast, some herbs, and bright fruit flavors of ripe pears and apples as well as citrus fruits. Full-bodied and elegant this is a quite intense and vivacious Blanc de Blancs with finesse and character that seems to be less ripe and rich than so many 2006s.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
