2002 was a great year for the Champagne Region. The conditions were extremely favourable to a good ripeness and concentration of flavours; ideal conditions for Chardonnay. This Duval-Leroy Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs (no dosage) bears a beautiful golden colour and a lace of fine sparkling bubbles. On the nose, it releases aromas of great purity such as white flowers or citrus fruits. The palate is of a great finesse and opens up on a structured, rich and pure wine. The mineral notes expressed in this vintage are typical of Chardonnay from the prestigious Côte des Blancs. The lingering finish develops vanilla and woody hints.
