Waltz into the New Year with the 2004 Duval-Leroy Clos Des Bouveries!!
Since its creation, Champagne DUVAL-LEROY has been located in Vertus, in the heart of “La Cote des Blancs”. Currently the House cultivates about 200 hectares, much of which is devoted to production of high quality Chardonnay grapes. The predominance of Chardonnay in the elaboration of the cuvees gives a finesse, lightness and elegance to DUVAL-LEROY champagnes. Headed by Carol DUVAL-LEROY since 1991, the company is one of the few remaining 100% family-owned Champagne firms and is ranked in the 15 top Champagne houses.
Clos des Bouveries, overlooking the village of Vertus, is an ancient plot of land belonging to the Duval-Leroy family, which enjoys a mid-slope position facing due east. This situation provides exceptional conditions producing one of the earliest growth cycles in the area, and enriching the fruits with an intense concentration of flavour, giving a most favourable effect on the senses.
“The Clos des Bouveries cuvee is a vintage champagne every year. The wine reflects the impact of the the climate on Champagne and shows the effect of its changes in the medium and long term.This champagne reflects the terroir, the climate and the know-how of the Chef de Cave. From a single plot and from a single grape variety, Clos des Bouveries is partially fermented in oak barrels to contribute fine woody notes and partially fermented in stainless steel tanks for mineral purity.”
There’s a malty edge to this creamy Champagne, which shows flavors of raisin bread and currant, with a touch of candied orange peel. The airy texture and frothy mousse create an elegant impression and bring you back for another sip, with a lightly juicy finish. Drink now through 2017. 2,000 cases made. –AN Wine Spectator 91 Points
