It was established in 1859 as a partnership between Edouard Leroy and Jules Duval, and is now in its sixth generation of family ownership – it is one of a few Champagne houses that is still entirely family-owned. Duval-Leroy is recognized for its environmental approach to winemaking, and was the first Champagne house to produce a certified organic Brut Champagne. A range of non-vintage and vintage Champagnes are produced from the house's 200 hectares (500 acres) of vineyard land. Around 40 percent of the estate's grapes come from Premier and Grand Cru vineyards such as Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Chouilly. Most of Duval-Leroy's non-vintage and vintage Champagnes are Chardonnay-dominant and range from Brut Nature to Demi-Sec styles. Femme de Champagne, meaning Woman of Champagne, is the house's tête de cuvée. It is a blend of 85 percent Chardonnay and 15 percent Pinot Noir, grown exclusively from Grand Cru sites. It is only produced in the best vintages and ages for a minimum of 10 years before release.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-13T17:24:23-05:00","created_at":"2023-01-12T05:33:57-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","nini1201","Other_Wine","Producer_Duval-Leroy","Region_Champagne","Source_CanaWine0123","Type_Sparkling Wine","Varietal_Chardonnay","Varietal_Pinot Noir"],"price":69999,"price_min":69999,"price_max":69999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42676253196426,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1996 | Duval-Leroy | Femme","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":69999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/27_6c7991ad-8154-4a6c-9f9e-2960f9f44ded.png?v=1673519730"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/27_6c7991ad-8154-4a6c-9f9e-2960f9f44ded.png?v=1673519730","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1996 | Duval-Leroy | Femme at CaskCartel.com","id":23958135570570,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.569,"height":541,"width":308,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/27_6c7991ad-8154-4a6c-9f9e-2960f9f44ded.png?v=1673519730"},"aspect_ratio":0.569,"height":541,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/27_6c7991ad-8154-4a6c-9f9e-2960f9f44ded.png?v=1673519730","width":308}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eSparkling Wine: 1996 | Duval-Leroy | Femme\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe silkiness and rare elegance of the Chardonnay from the 1996 harvest blend with the fruity and succulent character of the Pinot Noirs to endow Femme de Champagne with a harmonious complexity.
