Wine Enthusiast – 93
It is appropriate that Duval-Leroy has Femme as its top wine, since the company is run by one of the legendary “Champagne widows” Carol Duval-Leroy. This wine is an indication of the great quality now coming from this producer. It’s an elegant wine, dominated by Chardonnay, with intense green fruits, a fine structure, no sign at all of aging. With the wine this fresh it could probably age another 5–10 years.
