Odyssey Days by CHAMPAGNE DUVAL-LEROY offers a chance to step inside the secret world of one of the last independent, family-run champagne houses.
After launching its Bespoke Champagne Experience a few months ago where guests have the opportunity to create their own bespoke cuvée – More information about this luxury experience, Champagne Duval-Leroy extends its wine tourism experience with a premium offer : The Duval-Leroy Odyssey Days.
The Odyssey Days offer guests to discover the Champagne Region and to explore the wonders of Champagne for a unique day. Guests are welcomed in a convivial and epicurean setting where they will be fascinated and charmed in equal measure as they are introduced to the delights of champagne and the Champagne region.
Luxurious Experience of Champagne and Duval-Leroy
A private chauffeur will greet guests at the airport or station and transport you to the estate. The day begins with a walk through the family vineyard accompanied by Julien Duval-Leroy, who will share his knowledge of the different terroirs that make up Champagne and the work involved in tending the vines.
In the intimate and exclusive atmosphere of our cellars, guests will enjoy a tasting of vins clairs (still wines) directly from the oak barrels where wines from the precious parcels of the Duval-Leroy vineyards are aged.
Fine Food to Accompany the Fine Champagne
Lunch is devised by the three Michelin-starred chefs who were the first to have created their very own bespoke Cuvee in partnership with Duval-Leroy: Eric Frechon, the triple Michelin-starred chef at Le Bristol Paris Hotel’s Epicure restaurant; Christophe Bacquié, who holds two Michelin stars at Le Castellet Hotel; and Fabien Lefebvre, of L’Octopus in Béziers, holder of one Michelin star. With the House chef, the guests will create a dish to match perfectly with their bespoke Cuvee.
Explore the Secrets Behind the Production
In the afternoon, Champagne Duval-Leroy’s Cellar Master, Sandrine Logette-Jardin, will reveal the secrets behind the production of their champagne. This unique experience offers an introduction to the art of blending and dosage, followed by a very special tasting of the House’s finest champagnes.
Leave with Champagne and Priceless Memories
To conclude this journey into the heart of Champagne, visitors will each take away a bottle of champagne of their choice as they are chauffeured back for their homeward journey. For more information about this experience, visit http://www.duval-leroy.com
ABOUT DUVAL-LEROY: A family business founded in 1859 following the union of two Champagne families, Maison Duval-Leroy has remained independent and family-owned for over 150 years. Following the sudden death of her husband Jean-Charles in 1991, Carol Duval-Leroy entered the very closed circle of ladies of Champagne and gradually infused the entire company with her style. Dynamism, legacy, sustainable development and respect for authenticity are the values dear to this champagne House. Duval-Leroy champagnes are now renowned for their inimitably feminine elegance combining finesse and personality.
