"2006 årgangen er en klassisk Chardonnay årgang i Champagne. Duval-Leroy besidder Grand Cru marker i de bedste byer i Côte de Blancs: Les Mesnil Sur Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly og Oiry. En del af vinen blev gæret på fad for øget kompleksitet. Denne vin er i den klassiske, præcise og elegante Duval-Leroy stil. Duften er dyb og kompleks med aromaer af hvide blomster, mandarin og ristede mandler. Smagen er stor, silkeagtig og cremet med en udsøgt mineralitet og balance i den lange finish. En virkelig stor Champagne til de fineste retter med rødtunge, pighvar eller hummer."
"A minerally version, fresh and focused, with a subtle, smoky underpinning and rich flavors of toasted brioche and coconut, poached pear, candied kumquat and chopped almond riding the fine, lacy bead. Drink now and through 2026." Wine Spectator 93p
"A cool and relatively restrained nose features notes of green apple and plenty of citrus and floral characters that are trimmed in subtle yeast nuances. There is good punch to the relatively fine flavors that are underpinned by a fine but notably firm mousse on the lingering, clean and dry but not really austere finale. There is good but not exceptional complexity through more will almost develope in the next few years. On the plus side this is fresher and more vibrant than many '06s and while it could be enjoyed now I would advise holding it for another 2 to 5 years first." Burghound 91p
"It offers a delicious and matured bouquet of ripe fruits, cream, caramel and brioche flavors. It is pure, fresh and mineral on the palate, highly elegant and finessed but also intense, very well structured and provided with a perfect roundness in the long, clear and cleansing but also complex finish. It’s simply a gorgeous Champagne that I’d love to have with a never-ending Sunday morning brunch. Four percent of the wine were fermented in oak, the rest in stainless steel. The grapes were sourced in six grand cru villages such as Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry." Wine Advocate 94p
