Q & A with Don Van Staaveren, the winemaker for Three Sticks Wines
Every week The Daily Wine Blog "Terroirist" posts a series of questions to a winemaker.
Last week, (December 6, 2013) they featured Don Van Staaveren, the winemaker at Three Sticks Wines, a small producer in Sonoma that mainly focuses on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Durell Vineyard.
Announcing Champagne Duval-Leroy
Duval-Leroy was established in 1859 by the families Duval and Leroy in the village of Vertus, located in the department of Marne. Roughly 40% of production comes from Grand Cru vineyards with a majority from Côte des Blancs. The property is sustainable in farming practices and is extremely environmentally conscience, adapting to solar power for their source of energy.
The predominance of Chardonnay in the elaboration of the cuvees gives a finesse, lightness and elegance to DUVAL-LEROY champagnes. Headed by Carol DUVAL-LEROY since 1991, the company is one of the few remaining 100% family-owned Champagne firms and is ranked in the 15 top Champagne houses.
We are offering NV Brut, Brut Rose, Premier Cru NV, 2005 Clos des Bouveries and 2000 Femme de Champagne Grand Cru.
