Duval-Leroy Extra Brut

Cuvee: Extra-Brut
Vintage: Multi-Vintage
Initiated by Carol Duval-Leroy to give elegance to "nouvelle cuisine", Duval-Leroy's Extra-Brut Champagne incorporates a very low dosage (less than 4.9g/litre) and a well structured complexity. The finesse of its 100% Chardonnay blend reveals a high level of purity as its initial acidity reduces during an aging process of more than 3 years in the crayères (chalk caves).A pleasant mineral character flourishes amongst exuberant notes of saffron, pepper and vanilla spices. The blend Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay Tasting Notes Eye Shades of amber, green and gold and a very lively mousse Nose Brilliant, fresh nose, very much Chardonnay in style Mouth Very dry palate, with great body and texture.Notes of saffron, pepper and vanilla spices Food pairing Dryish, assertive sparkling wines have an affinity with smoked fish.
