So named due to literally being a ‘Champagne of Women’, Feme de Champagne is the creation of Carol Duval-Leroy, the President of the house, and her Head Winemaker, Sanrine Logette-Jardin. A blend of 95% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Noir with 6 grams per litre dosage.

From select vineyards: Chardonnay Grand Crus of Mont-Aigu from Chouilly, Chapelle of Avize, Terre de Noël from Oger, and Chertillon and Aillerand from Mesnil sur Oger, and Chetillon and Aillerand from Mesnil sur Oger. 25% of the chardonnay was vinified separately in oak casks. To quote Duval-Leroy, “a touch of Pinot Noir imparts roundness and character.”

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 30/10/2012


Clear, pale golden yellow with green tints and a constant stream of very fine bubbles.


Clean and delicate, apple and pear with vanilla, faint wood, lemon and mandarin zest.


Superbly clean and dry with cleansing acidity and subtle floral honeysuckle and hazelnuts.


Pear skin and cleansing cooking apple.
