Duval-Leroy Rosé Featured on Vindulge
In a new post on Vindulge, wine educator and blogger Mary Cressler features Duval-Leroy Rosé Prestige Premier Cru Brut NV as a “Sparkling wine for all occasions this holiday season.” Here’s her write-up:
Champagne Duval-Leroy Brut Rosé Prestige NV (Champagne, France)
“Oh wow! What a treat. We tried this one on the boys 5th birthday and I couldn’t think of a better wine to celebrate five years of parenthood. Made from mostly Pinot Noir (with 10% Chardonnay) from only Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards this wine had a fantastic balance of lemony citrus flavors along and red berries (strawberry, cherry, and raspberry). It explodes in the mouth with complexity, introducing some lime, lime peel, barely under-ripe strawberry (not sweet or cloying), minerals and the slightest hint of fresh toast. Hot damn, this wine was delicious, with this lingering savoriness that had me craving more. We were pretty sad when the last drop was poured. This would be a fantastic gift wine or something special to open up on New Year’s Day. And such a pretty pale pink color too!”- Mary Cressler
