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.

Food Suggestion

The scale of Duval-Leroy’s modern winery is a physical statement of the rapid progress at this family-owned company. Recently celebrating its 150th birthday, it now ranks in the 15 largest champagne houses, thanks to its dynamic, visionary leader, Carol Duval-Leroy, who has grown the estate during the past two decades. Chardonnay takes the lead in these graceful and elegant wines, reflecting the bright fruit purity of the village of Vertus.

Food Suggestion


This Fleur de Champagne is a highly recommended soprano aperitif that can easily match lighter, vegetable-based dishes, as well as fish, seafood and white meat.
