Many other prestigious vineyards will look down on the process of personalisation or opening their doors to the intricacies of creating something so exclusive as Champagne, but Duval-Leroy takes a refreshing perspective, by believing innovation lies in showing people the essence of Champagne-making, a drink that is both steeped in tradition and forever ‘of the moment’. Involving the consumer in this process has not happened overnight - the house, the vineyard, the entire location has been completely transformed to work aid in the personalised champagne making process. The balance between modernity and tradition is evident in the modern, minimalist tasting rooms, which overlook the 5km of historic, beautiful, chalk cellars.
Although focused on catering for the personalised customer, Duval-Leroy has not forgotten the integrity and source of the land that makes some of the most revered bubbles seen on many Michelin star tables. They strive for sustainability, with natural winemaking processes, and do everything they can to combat water waste and minimise pollution. Solar panels heat and light the tasting room, reception and oak barrel room, and a green wall of over 2500 plants keep the temperature and atmosphere ideal for winemaking. They are also the first Champagne house to produce a cuvee from organically grown grapes.
