Create your own cuvée with Duval-Leroy

The thrill of popping the cork, the satisfying clink as you fill a crystal flute – there is perhaps no other drink that promises fun, celebration and happy memories quite like Champagne. From breakfast bellinis to a high class nightcap, there is never a bad time to sip a glass of bubbles but there are also some great alternative ways to enjoy Champagne. Here are our favourites:

Create your own cuvée with Duval-Leroy

If the best limited edition Champagne collaborations just don't feel quite special enough then how about creating your very own unique cuvée? Cuvée Sur-Mesure, a new initiative from Duval-Leroy, allows wine lovers to visit its vineyard and cellars in Vertus, France and create their own personal blend across a two-day hands-on programme including lunch or dinner at Duval-Leroy HQ. The visit begins with a lesson in Champagne terroirs and cultivation methods from vineyard director Michel Oliveira before a tasting and blending masterclass with head of cellars Sandrine Logette-Jardin. Guests will then get down to the task of creating their own Champagne, deciding which grape varieties to add according to their preference for toasted or floral aromas, flavour intensity and a creamy or spicy palette. The cuvée will then take three months to deliver and will be presented in engraved bottles with a minimum order of 1,000 at a cost of £40,000.
