Canard-Duchêne is unique in its origins, history and style. The Champagne house has been located in Ludes, in the Montagne de Reims National Park, since 1868. Its founders, Victor Canard and Léonie Duchêne, both well-known characters in Champagne, were granted the right by the Russian Imperial Family to adopt its coat of arms as the family emblem. The crowned two-headed eagle has thus appeared on every Canard- Duchêne label since the end of the 19th century. Combining fruit character, intensity and complexity, Canard- Duchêne Champagnes offer the perfect balance of originality and authenticity.
A blend of 60 different Cru wines, Authentic Brut is traditionally crafted from 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay. Reserve wines from several years account for at least 20% of the blend.
