The prestigious cuvee “Femme de Champagne” is the product of the development of select vineyard plots put in place by the House of Duval-Leroy.
The Chardonnay Grand Crus of Mont-Aigu from Chouilly, Chapelle of Avize, Terre de Noël from Oger, and Chetillon and Aillerand from Mesnil sur Oger, are vinified separately in oak barrels to highlight the elegance and vitality, while a touch of Pinot Noir imparts roundness and character.
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.

What is the secret of leading extraordinary Champagne?
Few wines demonstrate as much grace and joy as Champagne. With its dancing bubbles and seductive texture, Champagne exudes a certain “joie de vivre” unmatched by any other libation. Along with these often considered “feminine” attributes, Champagne has historically been home to many female leaders in the French wine industry. Following in the footsteps of Barbe-Nicole Clicquot, Louise Pommery and Lilly Bollinger, Carol Duval-Leroy inherited Champagne Duval-Leroy upon her husband’s untimely passing. Determined to keep the company within the family, she subsequently became one of a handful of women leading Champagne houses, and over her 23 years in charge.
Over the past fifteen years my key priority has been to raise the quality of all our products to the highest level possible.
The mark of our success in this endeavour has been shown in the number of top awards and medals that Duval-Leroy obtains regularly at national and international competitions.
