New in America, Duval-Leroy is set to make a splash with its bold, artistic “Paris” bottle, silk-screened by artist Leroy Neiman. A 40/60 Chardonnay/Pinot blend, it carries scents of honeysuckle, hazelnut and vanilla into a fresh, flavorful and persistent middle. Hints of mint and even mint julep roll around the tongue, keeping the flavors lively and interesting.
