Duval LeRoy Brut Champagne Review by Billy
Nose: strongly floral with scents of honey-butter and citrus underneath Palate: strong firm bubbles that prick and prod your mouth. Very dry with strong grapefruit-acid backbone that pushes through the spritely bubbles with a slide-tackle Finish: quickly dissipates except for the extreme dryness that lingers, begging for another sip. Overall: I bought this Champagne for less than $20 at a local wine store. Its strong acid core and extreme dryness make it a great inexpensive pairing with meals. Raise a glass!
