Champagne Duval-Leroy has released Femme de Champagne 1996 (Champagne Woman).
Duval-Leroy remains, at the beginning of the 21st Century, a family-owned firm; for that we should be grateful, as Champagne has already had more than its fair share of big business buyouts. It was established in 1859 but in 1991 Carole Duval-Leroy took on the mantle of running the family firm, following the death of her husband. Carole's dynamic influence on the company, together with the applied skills of winemaker Hervé Jestin, has been a great benefit.
With a woman at the helm quality at Duval-Leroy has soared. Innovation and improvement have been the driving force behind Duval-Leroy’s rebirth – not to mention modernism!
