Canard-Duchêne Cuvée Léonie Brut Champagne 750ml

Quick Overview

This premium cuvée of this well-known Grand Marque is named after one of the founders Léonie Duchêne and was put together by new owner Alain Thiénot and some of the retired cellar masters from the estate. From the same blend as Canards standard Non-Vintage, 40% Pinot Noir 40% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, but here the similarity ends, this spends at least year more on its lees in the cellar before being disgorged and has a richer dosage. In the glass this has a persistent fine mousse an attractive creamy nose, with hints of tropical fruit and a soft quite rich biscuit and yeasty palate.

Canard-Duchêne Cuvée Léonie Brut Champagne 750ml

1860 in Ludes, Victor Canard, A cooper, and Léonie Duchêne, from a family of "vignerons" met and fell in love. They got married, and started to make their own champagne. Success came quickly, so they then decided to set up their own Champagne house. They joined their names together, in the true Champagne tradition, and Canard-Duchêne was born. The year was 1868.

STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Bright gold. Ripe orchard and pit fruits on the nose and in the mouth, with notes of honey and candied fig building with air. Lush and open-knit, with good heft and a touch of finishing warmth. This rich, weighty Champagne would work well with fish or poultry in a buttery sauce, or with aged, funky cheeses.

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Named after one of the founders of Canard-Duchêne, this Pinot Noir-dominated Champagne is packed with intensely textured fruit along with some beginnings of maturity. With its powerful final acidity, it's a food wine.

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Aromas of graphite and ginger pick up a citrus note on the palate. This is soft and rich, with a honeyed accent on the finish. Drink now.
