93 points | Duval-Leroy Femme de Champagne 2000
“Deep, powerful and authoritative, the 2000 Femme de Champagne offers striking nuance to match its ample personality. Hints of pastry, candied lemon, white orchard fruit, smoke and dried pear flesh out as the 2000 shows off its class. There is a lot to like here, especially the wine’s engaging, spherical feel. This is the best showing yet from the 2000. The Femme de Champagne is 95% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Noir from Mont-Aigu (Chouilly), Chapelle (Avize), Terre de Noel (Oger) and Chetillons and Aillerand (Mesnil sur Oger). Drinking window: 2015-2022.”- Antonio Galloni.
