Duval-Leroy Champagne Premier Cru Fleur de Champagne Brut

What to expect
Duval-Leroy’s NV Brut is a pleasant Champagne with good definition, clean minerality and an up-front, approachable personality that makes it an excellent choice for near-term drinking. Within the context of Champagne, it is also an excellent value.

Predominantly based on Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, the NV Fleur de Champagne Premier Cru Brut is a very delicate and elegant Champagne with lifted aromatics of ripe white fruit, pineapple, butterscotch, nougat, brioche and fresh toast.

The blend of Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Marne Valley gives this lean, but impressively balanced Brut a full, round and well-structured taste; whereas the Chardonnay lends silkiness, finesse and a chalky freshness with lovely lemon and grapefruit flavours in the serious, but stimulatingly refreshing and grippy finish. Exclusively based on Grand and Premier Crus.
