Tasting Notes

Colour Salmon Pink
Nose Its bouquet releases a wealth of aromas: wild cherries, figs and even a hint of ginger and geraniums.
Palate With a solid maturity and balanced vinosity, this wine represents the best of what Duval-Leroy has to offer to knowledgeable wine lovers and fans of fine rosés.
Food Pairing Aperitif makes an excellent accompaniment to dishes such as tuna tartare, foie gras terrine, smoked duck salad, pork based dishes and fruit based desserts.
Cellaring 15+ Years
Notes The Rosé Prestige plays on themes of harmony and seduction in a modern context. Its bottle, with its bronze tints and delicate curves, holds a shower of pink-gold stars which has become a paradigm. The delicacy of its bubbles, a string of fine pearls, escapes from the crystalline elegance of the airy neck of the bottle created by Carol Duval-Leroy. Its salmon colour, created from Premier Cru Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, holds one’s eye and brings hints of amber to the fore.

Champagne Duval-Leroy
Family owned and run through six generation since 1859, Champagne Duval-Leroy is one of the true elite Champagne houses, listed in over 250 Michelin-starred restaurants. Following in the footsteps of Carol, our “lady of champagne”, her three sons Julien, Charles and Louis have now come on board to perpetuate the house spirit. Together, they produce champagnes that are the essence of finesse, lightness and elegance, champagnes that speak right to the heart of professionals and consumers alike.
Champagne
Champagne is a wine region to the north-east of Paris where wine has been grown since the Romans first planted in the 5th century and the region is most well known for the sparkling wine that goes by the regions name.

Champagne is made from 3 grapes. The two red grapes Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and the white grape Chardonnay. All three are commonly blended though a ‘blanc de blanc’ meaning ‘white from white’ indicates that only Chardonnay was used. Conversely a ‘blanc de noir’ or ‘white from black’ indicates that the two red grapes were used.
A common misconception is that Champagne was invented by Dom Pérignon. Although this is not the case, he made considerable contributions to the quality and production methods used in the region. The very first bottles of Champagne were created by accident, and coined ‘the devil’s wine’ for all the popping corks. Sparkling wine in Australia was referred to as Champagne but this practise has long been disallowed.

Methode Champenoise is the traditional method by which Champagne is produced and if you see Millisime on a bottle, it represents the fact that the wine comes from a particular vintage rather than being blended, which is the more common practice.

Icons such as Dom Pérignon and Kristal are world reknowned, but we find as much pleasure in the smaller Champagne houses such as Gosset and Jacquinot. Magnums are perfect for the festive occasions and half bottles are also available.
