Nose has lemon slice, under-ripe yellow apple, moist chalk, wet salt and fresh brioche.
Palate has chalky, over-ripe yellow apple, sea spray, risen dough, solid acidity but not obtuse.
Pre-birthday dinner for our dear COVID bubble friend; we've only allowed one of our close friends into the house for almost the past year, tonight we're celebrating that he's one year older than me. 😉 — 15 days ago

Single vineyard "Les Belles Voyes" in the famous Grand Cru hillside of Oger. Pale lemon with fine creamy mousse and tiny rapid bubble flow, long lees aging. aromas stone fruits and blossom, bread dough and citrus. On the palate flavors of golden apple, peach, lemon citrus and honeysuckle with biscuit toast and nutty notes. Long finish, full-body ending with biscuit, mineral and citrus character. Outstanding! — 5 days ago
Popped and poured. Deep straw color with a persistent mousse. On the nose, this Champagne has autolytic and oxidative notes of almond breakfast croissants and marzipan with lemon curd. That palate is quite rich with citrus and nuts. I must admit that all of my previous experiences with Duval Leroy has been with the standard blue label Brut NV which does not carry the Premier Cru designation so take the following comments with a grain of salt. Based off the color, flavor profile, and the fact that cork did not expand after being extracted, I am left to wonder if this wine has seen some years of age. Unfortunately, there is no disgorgement data to be found and the date code is all gibberish to me. Regardless, a perfectly nice bottle of Champagne if you like those more oxidative qualities. — a month ago
