The Birth of Maison De Roval
The Start of a Friendship
The foundation of Maison De Roval evolved from a great friendship between two men and two women who shared the same passion for outstanding craftsmanship. The four were pioneers and connoisseurs of the finest clocks and watches, their unwavering ambition was to create an exceptional and unique champagne, a product faithful to the champenoise tradition and at the same time a subtle alliance between oenology and jewellery.
Between them they’ve created a unique and innovative champagne, which faithfully observes the champenoise tradition.
Creativity, enthusiasm and conviction are not enough in themselves to create an exceptional champagne. Years of patient research and visits throughout the length and breadth of Champagne led to a decisive meeting with Reynald Breton, the head of the Champagne Breton Fils family domaine in Congy. He is a wine-grower who loves his work, is driven by a profound sense of excellence and boasts tried and tested know-how. He is passionate about champagne, in perfect harmony with the founders of the Maison De Roval.
A Rich and Varied Terroir
The uniqueness of De Roval champagne stems from the subtle assembly of its component parts. Its rich bouquets have evolved from the wise collection of vines located in 11 communes of two prestigious Champagne regions: the Côte des Blancs and the Vallée de la Marne. Maison De Roval boasts 17 hectares of wines that grow strongly in this royal land. On its slopes and in its valleys the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier languish and grow before finally coming together in the cellars.
Expertise and Secrets known only to the Inner Circle
From generation to generation the Breton family have developed and enriched the noble art of the champanoise tradition.
Nothing surpasses the delicacy, sensitivity and perception of the craftsman’s touch. Manual work is the preferred way of ensuring the fineness of Champagnes De Roval. Taking care of the wine when rotating the bottles, as well as during the harvest, artisan knowledge and expertise are expressed through the sensitivity of human hands.
The Creation of a Unique Bottle
Such prestigious champagne, lovingly and expertly raised by a traditional winemaker, deserves a sublime bottle. And so, a unique vessel was created; black and full of mystery, from which a tender gold fleur de lys offset with five high quality diamonds, seems to emerge as if by magic.
Each bottle is a unique work of art, manufactured by craftsmen at the peak of their craft. The bottle is crowned with the cork’s muselet, exquisitely formed with two carved fleur de lys. The engraved and panelled label has been finely worked in gold by artisan jewellers.
A Characteristic Style
A De Roval champagne is characterised by its rare elegance. Its bottle is a delicate piece of jewellery glowing with golden splinters of life. Its nectar shines in its pure gold livery and its generous, extra-fine, bubbles are the fruits of a long ageing process. The quintessence of its flavours bursts and lingers in the mouth as the magic of the champagne is expressed in all its splendour.
An Exclusive Range
De Roval champagnes are found in a range of Special Vintages of elegant maturity:
- The Brut, a Blanc de Blancs created from Chardonnay grapes from a single year;
- The Millésime 2003, an exceptional Blanc de Blancs;
- The Rosé, a delicate mixture of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
For the Special Vintages, the supreme quality of the grapes, patiently grown in the vineyards of the Breton domaine, married to an ideal ageing process in cool chalky cellars, means that a dry champagne can be created with a very small amount of liqueur being added as a top-up.
