The passion of Duval-Leroy for authenticity is demonstrated in this cuvee, made only from Petit Meslier, a grape variety all but forgotten in Champagne, with a limited production quantity of 988 bottles. This robust grape thrives in clay soils like those in the Valley of the Marne.
From the 2005 vintage, this wine for the true connoisseur releases a powerful bouquet, at once both balanced and complex. Petit Meslier gives a supple and fruity character which develops a little more quickly and brings roundess to the wine. It shows a yellow colour speckled with gold.
A product of the close relationship between the vines and the sun, and a profound observance of nature, this wine causes a liveliness mixed with smooth and warm touches behind a well-balanced depth to explode in the mouth, giving pleasure to connoisseurs and lovers of distinctive flavours.
Aromas of white peach, violets and verbena will delight the keenest lovers of champagne. Its depth of flavour will express itself with potatoes stuffed with escargots, fennel, toast with quail’s eggs and cured ham.
100% Petit Meslier
