DESCRIPTION
  • Duval-Leroy is one of the of the few family-owned large Champagne Houses. The House is still based in its village of origin, Vertus, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs, where the family runs 200 hectares of vineyards.

    The predominance of Chardonnay grapes in the elaboration of the cuvées gives finesse, lightness, and elegance to the Duval-Leroy champagnes.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Made from a special plot in Vertus that’s been in the family for a long time, Clos de Bouvieres 2003 has it’s own special method of production. 100% Chardonnay, partially fermented in oak barrels to contribute fine woody notes and partially fermented in stainless steel tanks for mineral purity. The age of the vines is 40 to 50 years, with their mid-slope position, facing due east, providing exceptional conditions, and producing one of the earliest growth cycles in the area, enriching the fruits with an intense concentration of flavour. Another unique quality of this vineyard is the fact that no insecticides or pesticides are used. The Clos des Bouveries cuvee is a vintage champagne every year.

    TASTING NOTES

    Silver tints shaded by a yellow-green colour. The wine shows a fine to moderate mousse. Aromatic, floral and fresh. Smoky nose, fruit with a steely-citrus edge. The palate brings lemon and pear notes, adorned by a subtle eucalyptus hint, followed by fine smoky characters.

  • REVIEWS

    'Full yellow colour, with meringue and 'iced pastry' aromas. Lemon and grapefruit, turning rich and full in the mouth with a clean, dry finish and tremendously appetising aftertaste. Grapefruit bitterness on the finish which is nice.'
