Wine Review: This almost clear Champagne, with small streaming bubbles opens with an attractive quince and lime bouquet with a hint of wet slate. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, nicely balanced and fresh. The flavor profile is a tasty mild lime and mineral blend with notes of mild bread dough. I also detected hints of tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. I would pair this very nice Champagne with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Maison Duval-Leroy revels in the art of blending Pinots and Chardonnays. Enriched with around fifteen crus and a generous quantity of reserve wines, Duval-Leroy Brut Reserve confirms its complexity and is recognized for its consistency. Providing a perfect balance between finesse and power, it draws out flavours of dark chocolate, cinnamon and roasted yellow figs, expressing its subtle, melt-in-the-mouth vinosity. Ideal as an aperitif wine, it also provides a subtle accompaniment to white meats.
