  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    This 2006 Vintage showcases Chardonnays from the best vineyards certified Grand Cru. This cuvee is an affirmation of what Duval-Leroy’s style offers at its best, sharpened by an exquisite freshness.

    On the palate, this great wine is silky smooth and exhibits a suppleness which provides the qualities of both balance and richness.

    Region: Champagne

  • REVIEWS

    Tasted for the third time now, the 2006 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Millésime Prestige offers a delicious and matured bouquet of ripe fruits, cream, caramel and brioche flavors. (The wine tasted here is from lot L6280NG09, which was disgorged in October 2016 after 9.5 years on the lees, with a dosage of less than five grams per liter.) It is pure, fresh and mineral on the palate, highly elegant and finessed but also intense, very well structured and provided with a perfect roundness in the long, clear and cleansing but also complex finish. This is by far the best lot I have tasted so far; it's simply a gorgeous Champagne that I'd love to have with a never-ending Sunday morning brunch. Four percent of the base wines were fermented in oak, the rest in stainless steel. The grapes were sourced in six grand cru villages such as Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry. Tasted on a dark and rainy November evening 2017.

    'Very pale. Light and fresh. Extremely racy and sinewy. I wonder whether any of the UK supermarkets sell this? The opposite of heavy but lovely balance – quite long too.'
