Champagne house Duval-Leroy is to launch a non-vintage Champagen specifically targeted at vegetarians and vegans.

The Champagne is made from grapes from a particular 27ha plot owned by Duval-Leroy using traditional "enlightened viticulture" methods only.

Hervé Jestin, chef de caves at Duval-Leroy said: "While enlightened viticulture is technically more difficult to implement and often more costly, it provides the consumer with optimum organoleptic quality with no health risks.

"This method of cultivation helps to preserve the long-term potential of the soil and by excluding the use of any animal fining agents our new Champagne not only tastes good but it is also suitable for vegans and vegetarians."

The bottle is clearly labelled vegetarian and vegan while the wine itself is made from 100% Pinot Noir.
