"Collection Femme er Duval-Leroys flagskib. Den fremstilles udelukkende i topår, og kun i stærkt begrænsede mængder. Vinen er sammensat af 95% Chardonnay og 5% Pinot Noir udelukkende fra Grand Cru-marker. Vinen lagres hele ti år inden frigivelse. Duften byder på blomster, tørret frugt og nødder. Smagen har en mageløs fin struktur - som at drikke silke. Eftersmagen er lang, og rundes af med en appetitvækkende friskhed. En enestående Champagne."
"The 2000 Femme comes all from grand cru sites and is 95% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Noir. It offers a ripe, rounded, impressively layered and concentrated profile that’s very much in the style of the 2000 vintage. Stone fruits, brioche, charcoal, and spice characteristics give way to a full, rich, and layered Champagne that has a vibrant mouse and a clean finish. It’s drinking beautifully today."

"Lemon, green pears, pastry and spices are some of the many notes that take shape in Duval-Leroy’s 2000 Brut Femme de Champagne. There is a soft, open quality to the 2000 that is highly appealing. Hints of honey, flowers and Chamomile add complexity to a creamy finish nicely supported by lively, buffering minerality. This is a lovely effort from Duval-Leroy." Wine Advocate 92p
"A rich version, with beautiful integration and mouthwatering acidity that seems to amplify the flavors of toasted raisin bread, black currant, candied orange zest and salted almond. Fresh and focused, showing hints of oyster shell and spice on the lasting finish." Wine Spectator 94p
"Bright gold. Complex aromas of fresh pit and orchard fruits, with bright floral and chalky mineral qualities adding lift and focus. Meyer lemon and bitter pear skin flavors are complemented by chamomile and buttery brioche, with a hint of tarragon in the background. Closes smooth, smoky and very long, with bracing citrus fruit qualities adding bite. All of the chardonnay in this blend comes from grand cru sites in Chouilly, Avize, Oger and Mesnil-sur-Oger. Firm and expressive, with well-cut acidity framing flavors of currant, licorice, bread dough and blanched almond. The mousse is soft and creamy, and this shows hints of mineral, apple and fennel seed that linger on the lasting finish." Vinous 92p
