Duval-Leroy Femme 2000


SKU 30463


Femme de Champagne vintage 2000 is an outstanding example of a special year. It is in the line of other unforgettable vintages, 1990, 1995 and 1996. Its yellow gold colour carries fine strands of bubbles which reveal complex notes of a lively maturity: brioche, vanilla and wood aromas alternating with citrus fruits such as lemon and mandarin. After the fine initial burst of flavour in the mouth comes a silky touch interwoven with remarkable length on the palate. With its "Femme de Champagne", the Maison opens its doors to an unforgettable tasting experience. How to enjoy it: With boiled eggs or caviar.

Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Brut Femme de Champagne is a pretty, nuanced wine. Peaches, apricots, dried flowers and sweet spices are some of the notes that emerge from this textured, beautifully balance wine. The 2000 is quite open and accessible. The mid-weight structure and slightly advanced bouquet both suggest the wine is best enjoyed over the next 7-10 years, give or take. This is a lovely showing from Duval-Leroy. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

Wine SpectatorThe creamy mousse and racy acidity frame finely meshed hints of black licorice, Jonagold apple, white peach, honey and lemon zest in this bright, focused Champagne, which has a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2016.
