femme de champagne 2000
Carol Duval-Leroy and Sandrine Logette -Jardin, her wine maker, have together created a distinctive bottle with its rounded lines which nurtures a great Champagne, golden like a jewel and soft like a fragrance, designed to gain approval from people of taste and distinction.
The prestigious cuvee Femme de Champagne is the product of the development of select vineyard plots put in place by the House of Duval-Leroy.
The Chardonnay Grand Crus of Mont-Aigu from Chouilly, Chapelle of Avize, Terre de Noël from Oger, and Chetillon and Aillerand from Mesnil sur Oger, are vinified separately in oak barrels to highlight the elegance and vitality, while a touch of Pinot Noir imparts roundness and character.
Femme de Champagne vintage 2000 is an outstanding example of a special year. It is in the line of other unforgettable vintages, 1990, 1995 and 1996.
Its yellow gold colour carries fine strands of bubbles which reveal complex notes of a lively maturity: brioche, vanilla and wood aromas alternating with citrus fruits such as lemon and mandarin. After the fine initial burst of flavour in the mouth comes a silky touch interwoven with remarkable length on the palate.
With its "Femme de Champagne", the Maison opens its doors to an unforgettable tasting experience.

96/100 – TOP WINES RECOMMENDED BY Bruce SANDERSON
– Vintage 1995 (75 cl) “A gorgeous Champagne from start to finish. Supple, creamy and stylish, it exhibits lemon candy, vanilla, coffee and hazelnut aromas and flavours. It’s fresh and beautifully balanced, with a long coffee and butter-scotch aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.
95/10 – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY Bruce SANDERSON –
Vintage 1996 “A strong graphite aroma leads into sumptuous flavours of tobacco, biscuit, citrus and walnut in this athletic Champagne. It’s very vinous, a serious bubbly that can stand up to light meat and poultry dishes. Kaleidoscopic finish.
1 étoile – La cuvée Femme de Champagne semble d’une éternelle jeunesse. Fraîcheur et harmonie sont au rendez-vous de ce champagne floral, beurré et long.
