Sweetness & Sparkle

WELCOME TO EDITION 797 of GRAPEVINE

Champagne Duval-Leroy is based in Vertus

The holiday season starts in little more than two weeks.

Whether we celebrate Christmas or the Gregorian New Year, 2020 has been a horrible, please-not-again year.

We could certainly do with some sweetness. And sparkle.

As such, our sister website www.wineguru.com.sg is offering 20 sets of 7 ½ bottles of Champagne Duval-Leroy.

Each set comprises 6 bottles of Demi-Sec, a bottle of Femme de Champagne Grand Cru Brut (not named on the label but is of the 2004 vintage), and a half-bottle of Femme de Champagne 2004.

Champagne authority Michael Edwards has pronounced 2004 of:

“Outstanding quality with excellent balance of fruit and acidity”


Vertus is a Premier Cru in the Cote des Blancs

Should you order a set, I think it worthwhile to enjoy Femme de Champagne Grand Cru Brut and Femme de Champagne 2004 one after the other. In that order.

Following them, treat yourself to the Demi-Sec*.

All three wines have outstanding bottle age.

Large, round glasses are recommended.

No more than two or three people in total for the 2 ½ bottles.

It would be a good way to bring sparkle and sweetness back to our frayed lives.

Wishing you A Good Week.

*Incidentally, Duval-Leroy Demi-Sec is outstanding with Honey Glazed Ham and Sichuan Cuisine.
