Champagne Duval-Leroy — Rosé de Saignée
Duval-Leroy took the bull by the horns when her husband Jean
died back in 1991. Since then, she has single-handedly directed
the company she loves and is becoming another famous Madame
Clicquot of Veuve Clicquot. The result of all this hard work
and dedication is excellent Champagne at a great price. In
fact, any bottling in their lineup offers both great value
and a pleasant experience in the mouth. This week we wanted
to feature the Rosé, which is manufactured by a traditional
rosé-making method called saignée using 100
percent Pinot Noir from Vertus. In the glass you will find
a wine with an attractive color and fragrant fruity nose.
In the mouth you will find a good body, richness in layers
and enough structure to hold against food. This is a versatile
wine that can pair with an array of food, from Sushi to lighter
meats and sweet dishes like clafoutis.
