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. These authentic, original Champagnes combine fruit, intensity and complexity.
Authentic Brut epitomises the Canard-Duchêne style, where freshness and intensity bring together nobility and nature. Its secrets lie in the unique combination of its location in the Montagne de Reims, the subtle blend of Pinot and Chardonnay and careful ageing in the long galleries of the underground cellars in Ludes. Characterised by fresh fruit aromas jostling with brioche notes, the sign of good ageing, Authentic Brut is a light-hearted Champagne, perfect for every occasion.
The Canard-Duchêne signature perfectly befits its setting in Ludes. The park, with its centuries-old trees, magnificent views over the vineyards, vast residence hosting more than 6km of chalk-carved underground cellars, make this a truly unforgettable visit.
